Hummel Targets Affordable Housing
Take a look at a Hummel Report on affordable housing in Barrington.
Barrington's own Jim Hummel takes a look at affordable housing in today's Hummel Report. And he focuses, where else, on his hometown.
Read and hear what affordable-housing critic Gary Morse of Barrington and Barrington Town Council President June Speakman, a longtime advocate, have to say about the mandate that every town in Rhode Island must develop at least 10 percent of its housing stock as affordable.
Barrington officials have no choice but to work to achieve the mandate, says Speakman, and the town has moved aggressively to do it.
But Morse thinks many Barrington property owners are being forced to subsidize other property owners who might actually have more means at their disposal to pay taxes than they do given the subsidies they receive.
