School & Community Stability

To truly build one Pittsburgh, forced displacement of residents for developments must stop. We must greatly expand our affordable housing stock, along with protecting the affordable housing we already have. We need to make sure that all residents of Pittsburgh who have lived through the old times, through the hard times, are able to benefit from the good times by:

- Working to pass a mandatory inclusionary zoning policy that requires truly affordable housing in new developments, as recommended by the Affordable Housing Task Force, Homes for All Pittsburgh, and others.

- Strict “Build-First” requirements for development that destroys existing affordable housing.

- Protect against speculating through land banking and community land trusts ensuring community control and affordable housing in perpetuity.

- Work to include rent stabilization measures.
