On February 22, 2012, Mayor Vincent C. Gray signed a Mayor’s Order appointing 36 members to the Comprehensive Housing Strategy Task Force 2012. The Task Force 2012 will build upon the work of the previous Task Force (2003-2006). “The goal of the Comprehensive Housing Strategy Task Force is to help city leaders ensure the creation of more affordable housing for residents of the District of Columbia,” said Mayor Gray. “While I believe that every D.C. resident deserves a decent, safe and affordable place to live, I also know this goal can prove challenging to reach in dense, fast-growing cities like ours. The work of this Task Force will help us make these efforts more achievable for all of our residents.” The new report, “Bridges to Opportunity: A New Housing Strategy for DC,” was released this week and can be downloaded here.
