Among the top priorities at NRC’s Housing planning meeting include assisting landlords to lower the cost of managing apartment buildings, promoting energy efficiency programs and working with condominium associations for better management.
December 4, 2012 –North River Commission (NRC) held our final planning meeting as part of a five part visioning series in order to create our community’s next 5 year strategic plan. Hundreds of community leaders and businesses came together throughout 2012 to develop visions and goals in the areas of arts and culture, education, economic development, housing and parks and open spaces.
At NRC's Housing Planning meeting held at Mayfair Commons, 4444 W. Lawrence Avenue, community members, civic associations, landlords, homeowners, tenants and housing organizations worked together to discuss and decide key priorities including Housing Creation and Real Estate Development, Energy Efficiency, Preserving Rental Housing and Landlord Support and Homeownership/Condominium Support.
Highlights of Visioning for Housing goals for the next 5 years:
*Promote energy efficient resources and programs to homeowners and area landlords
*Build a network of local landlords to assist them in lowering the cost of managing apartment buildings
*Explore opportunities to build new affordable senior and family housing
*Provide technical assistance to support condominium associations’ management needs
Thank you to our committed leaders for facilitating the discussion and to all the community members who came to share their ideas to shape our community’s housing goals for the next five years.
