Description

April is Fair Housing Month! Ted Wimpey, Chair of the Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition Steering Committee and Director of the CVOEO Fair Housing Project, interviews Amy Demetrowitz, Director of Real Estate Development for the Champlain Housing Trust.

On the 50th anniversary of the passage Federal Fair Housing Act in 1968 (one week after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.), these long-time leaders in affordable housing discusses systemic issues which affect its development, especially in Chittenden County. They explore some possible systemic changes — mostly at a municipal level — that could create conditions for more affordable housing to be built; less zoning that tends to be exclusionary in impact and more ways to create housing opportunities for lower- and moderate-income people. In other words, not the funding issues that are so important of course, but rather zoning and permitting factors that can enhance or obstruct more affordable housing creation.
