May 03, 2023 1:03 pm

Mid-Hudson News reports that Ulster County Executive Jen Metzger says she will sign local law number two of 2023, designating affordable housing a Public Purpose and creating the legal foundation so that the county can develop, maintain, manage, and provide affordable housing. County Legislator Abe Uchitelle sponsored the law, and said, "Local Law #2 goes beyond simply affirming housing as a priority in spirit; it has laid the foundation for Ulster County to invest in groundbreaking programs that will provide new units of much-needed housing for our community.” In February, in her state of the county address, Metzger proposed a housing trust with an initial investment of $15 million to build affordable housing. Gov. Kathy Hochul, and many Hudson Valley officials, say their is an affordable housing crisis in New York. Metzger said that one in three renters in Ulster County spend more than half their income on housing. Read more about Mid-Hudson News.
