Measured words in the North Denver Tribune from the three politicians working to pass a new affordable housing plan for Denver.

There’s also an explanation of the proposal, but you can read ours, so to me, it’s more interesting to look the language Mayor Michael Hancock, Councilwoman Robin Kniech and Councilman Albus Brooks use to argue for the plan:

“Some will say our plan isn’t bold enough, others that it’s too expensive and we can’t afford it. But one thing is certain — the status quo just isn’t an option anymore.”

And then that modest approach:

“This is a modest approach to help solve a significant challenge and was created with input over the past year from hundreds of people, including housing advocates, nonprofit and for-profit developers, homeless service providers, community representatives, business and industry groups and many, many Denver residents.”
