Thursday, April 27, 2017 Projects Interactive Tools Governing.com Perhaps the most intriguing new idea about affordable housing is to think of the issue more broadly. Thats the approach touted by Scott Bernstein, who heads the Center for Neighborhood Technology in Chicago. We have a national discussion about income, Bernstein says, pointing to the proliferation of living wage ordinances and the debate around them. We dont have a national discussion about the cost of living. In Bernsteins view, true affordability involves much more than the price of shelter. It includes, most important, transportation. In most cities, the affordable housing strategy most homeowners and renters use is basically drive until you qualify. Housing prices drop as distance from the city increases. As a result, homeowners and renters keep moving further out until they find a place where they afford to live. Unfortunately, they nearly always underestimate the cost of transportation. Very low-income people can easily spend 80 percent of their incomes on the combined cost of housing and transportation, Bernstein says. Even moderate-income people who are stuck with no mass transit can end up spending as much on transportation as on housing. Chicago Tribune | April 18, 2017 The Boston Globe | March 27, 2017 Politifact Florida, in partnership with the Tampa Bay Times & Miami Herald | March 24, 2017 With the recent uptick in manufacturing around the United States, the importance of food manufacturing to local economies has come into focus for its roles in creating jobs and building on the local culinary and cultural assets of a community. With this focus has arrived an interest in supporting food manufacturing entrepreneurs as they start and grow their businesses. As a result, food manufacturing incubators and shared commercial kitchens are sprouting up in cities around the county. To explore these issues, CNT convened a group of experts in December 2016 to workshop potential energy savings for the Hatchery, a food manufacturing incubator in Chicago. The goals of the workshop and this resulting white paper were 1) to help the Hatchery team make the operations as efficient as possible and 2) to share the workshop findings with the broader food manufacturing incubation industry to build understanding of the best energy saving options for such operations.
