We have four suburban areas where the developers created a mini downtown and the are very populated with everyone. Has nothing to do with politics unless you want to count the development company CEO being Republican. They were designed to give a small town atmosphere and give home buyers local entertainment and eateries. They are considered very desirable areas and have held their property values much better. The first one is the strongest Republican voter district in the metro area...Sun City. Verado is west of us, has their own local schools, preplanned parks, daycare centers, etc.
They are talking about moving low income housing projects to the suburbs, and taking away zoning for single family homes, so other those of housing can be built on properties that are now SFDs, not what you have mentioned.
There would have to be major major legislation to accomplish that. States have control, then counties, then cities. Not something I think will have any chance of passing. It's election year...both sides are spewing all kinds of idiotic things.
It’s been talked about for a long time. It’s already in place in a few areas.
Before you take Stanley Kurtz' distorted editorial seriously, take a look at Biden's actual plan https://joebiden.com/housing/.
I'm sure there are areas, but can you show me what political party was in control at the time and what government level seized the private property? Federal, state, county or city? I ask for a reason.
The city of Phoenix loaned a developer $$ to build a hotel during one of the Super Bowls here. After the SuperBowl, the developer defaulted on the loan and the City of Phoenix became the owner. There were/are several ideas promoted. A home for homeless, apartments for military homeless vets. Rooms combined and Refurbished to apartments for low income families (section 8 in other words). Then came corona and now they are thinking of using it as a "temporary" housing/care center for those recovering from Covid but not in need of intensive medical care. If AZ were to elect a Democratic governor and something was done with this hotel to benefit homeless or the poor, the Democrat would be blamed for it when in reality it started 2 decades ago with a Republican governor and mayor.
