Letter: Let’s talk about affordable housing



I thoroughly enjoyed Ann Marie Shambaugh’s Jan. 28 article on housing costs in Carmel. It’s a problem that deserves as much attention as possible, and I hope this article helps continue the larger conversation.

If this trend continues, it will create a wide variety of problems. It will prohibit deserving families and individuals from living here in the first place. It will prevent current families from downsizing, which will in turn keep families with school-age children from moving in, and we’ll all act surprised when schools close. Enrollments east of Meridian are already in decline. Unaddressed affordable housing issues will only hasten these effects.
