Following several years of planning and research, the City Council approved the adoption of the Housing and Economic Development Strategic Plan.
The plan is designed to:
- Preserve existing businesses and affordable housing in Takoma Park, including in revitalizing areas;
- Produce more housing and opportunities for businesses to start and grow across the income spectrum and in neighborhoods across the City to meet diverse housing and economic needs;
- Protect renters, homeowners, and local businesses from discrimination and displacement; and protect our environment from destruction.
