Today on the Inland Journal podcast, we talk about creating more housing in the Spokane area, especially for people with low incomes.
Most candidates for Spokane city office proclaim the region has a housing shortage. Mayoral candidate Ben Stuckart claims lack of housing is the city’s most pressing issue. Many we have interviewed have talked about the incentives the city should be — and in some cases, is — offering developers to create new housing.
We talk with Kay Murano, the executive director of the Spokane Low Income Housing Consortium, about what she’s seeing in the housing market and what might be on the horizon.
