On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The local economy is humming. But it’s threatened by a housing crunch that has sent home prices and rents to levels out of reach for most people.
A recent study shows that the region needs 320,000 more housing units by 2030, and that the vast majority must be affordable. But what does “affordable” mean? Depending on where you live in the DMV, a six-figure income may not be enough to live even modestly.
A slew of local bills are on the table for dealing with the crisis. What would they do? And how likely are they make inroads into the problem?
