I believe “affordable” housing is the next great scam. Like the wastewater projects, affordable housing is necessary. Also like the wastewater projects, it presents a great opportunity for the unscrupulous to scalp the taxpayers. Of course, local and county government officials are all too happy to help in the scalping.
Here’s a story from the Blue Paper that has me thinking about the role of liveaboards in relieving the housing crunch.
I’m also wondering exactly how the Florida Keys Stewardship Act (FKSA) plays into all this. The subject of land for “affordable” housing comes up quite a bit in the FKSA.
