"Currently, there are many forces working against the dream of affordable housing. Building and land costs, speculation, inflation, taxes... etc. This is everyday news but do you realize that a great portion of housing cost is a direct result of local government regulations? Increasingly, decision makers are being advised to approve stringent design guidelines that require aesthetically pleasing, but very costly facades, roof scapes, drive-ways, and treatments.
