Good morning Roy. A big issue in Chicago as regentrification of neighborhoods grips the city and developers. Enjoy your day

The presence of housing for those hard working individuals is a very important thing, so I hope that this hearing will go well and the right procedures will be put in place.

Good morning Roy.  Affordable housing is becoming an oxymoron in this country in most places.

Good morning, Roy - housing affordability is an issue in big and small cities across the country.  A new trend of dorm-like rentals with a private sleeping space but common area living is making an appearance in our area.  Combine that with increasing multi-generational living - it's interesting to see the rapid changes.

Good morning, Roy... Affordable Housing seems to be the buzz word here in the Charlotte metro area these days... not that they are making great strides in making it available.

Good Morning Roy Kelley - Gaithersburg sounds like a very active community where people get involved for the greater good. As residents, you don't have to love politics but I still think you need to know what's going on and support good causes.

Roy, having talks on affordable housing is needed, and probably in every larger city across the country.

Hi Roy, you are always doing a great public service by promoting these events. On another note, will you and the Chef be watching the Superbowl today?

So many cities around me these days do not want affordable housing so this is a meeting I would attend.

Affordable Housing is becoming an important topic in many areas of the nation.  I hope Gaithersburg comes to a good working solution.

Roy, sadly these public hearings politicians talk a good game but when it comes to action, the only developers that get fast tracked are the ones that do favors for the politicians... well at least that is how it is in my part of the world...Endre
