Affordable / workforce housing in Tampa Bay02/09/12 Mitch Perry
Last Call Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Debra Koehler with Sage Partners was our main guest, speaking about affordable/workforce housing. Mark Hendrickson, former head of the state housing agency and now a private consultant called in from Tallahassee to discuss the Sadowski Trust, which are housing funds composed of local and state revenue from documentary-stamp taxes paid on property sales. While the recession has reduced those sales, and the need for new housing, the funds can still be used to repair and rehabilitate old apartment buildings and foreclosed, abandoned properties.
