Please take a minute right now to tell your city councilmember to take concrete steps to address the shortage of affordable housing in our community.
Housing affordability is a major crisis found in nearly every community in Washington State, including here in towns like Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. Growing pressure and demand for housing has led to skyrocketing prices and low housing supply. In response to this issue, members of the North Central Washington Association of REALTORS® are working with the City Council to implement new legislation to create more housing choices, help eliminate barriers to an increased housing supply, and to reduce homelessness.
In fact, families in all income groups are struggling to find affordable housing. This affects every segment of the housing and rental markets in the Greater Wenatchee Area.
Thanks to work done by the state legislature this year, funds and other resources are now available to help local communities, like ours, address the housing shortage and tackle homelessness.
Encourage our City Council to continue working to make the necessary changes to local policies and regulations and access available housing funding and resources. These actions will enable the construction of affordable choices for individuals and families in our community especially our teachers, nurses, public safety workers and others working in the service, hospitality and agricultural industries.

YES! I support the City Council finding new ways to promote housing affordability.
