Affordable housing gains momentum

According to the 2015 U.S. Census, approximately 75 percent of Lake County residents commute out of the county for work.

The affordable housing movement is gaining momentum in Lake County.

Economic Planning Systems, a Denver-based consulting firm hired by the Lake County Housing Coalition to conduct a housing-needs assessment last winter, released their final report earlier this month.

The report delves into Lake County’s unique geographic and economic context and ballooning housing market. The document also recommends a set of forward-moving actions.
