High rents can displace people, families and make changes to a community which is not always for the benefit of every neighborhood. The Bronx has been labeled the most affordable borough in New York City. This should mean, we have the ability to be a community that makes space for everyone without existing residents being priced out of their current communities as our borough's popularity increases. We need to build more affordable home ownership opportunities and more affordable rental units for existing residents. Affordable home ownership opportunities and rentals would retain the current culture while welcoming new residents and decrease the need to create new homeless shelters in our communities.
