Tempe moves to expand affordable, workforce housing options
By AZ Big Media
Affordable housing in Tempe has been an issue for quite some time. Every other day it seems like a new luxury apartment development with a lazy river is being built on a prime piece of real estate somewhere downtown.
With residents voicing serious pushback and Tempe officials still being split on the decision to approve yet another luxury housing complex, the college town finds itself with a new opportunity to expand affordable housing options in Tempe. Mayor Corey Woods has made housing affordability it a priority.
