Posted by: VHFA on 1/24/2011

The Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition (VAHC) is encouraging Burlington residents to attend tonight's Burlington City Council meeting and speak out in support of affording housing in Vermont.

The Council is considering adding a question to Burlington's March ballot urging Vermont lawmakers to protect 300 affordable housing units in the Queen City by passing preservation legislation.

According to VAHC, more than 2,500 affordable units are at risk statewide.

The Council's meeting is at 7 tonight, at City Hall, 149 Church St., Burlington. The public forum begins at 7:30.
