Thinking Out Loud for 1/11/2007

by at 1:20 pm.

Tomorrow on Thinking Out Loud (10am, 91.5FM, stream it here live), in continuence with our month of “housing crisis” discussions, we’ll be talking to Community Teamwork, Inc’s Ed Cameron, Associate Executive Director of the Division of Housing and Homeless Services.

Ed will talk about CTI’s efforts to combat homelessness, and also the City of Lowell’s new 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness (kickoff will be on Monday, Jan 29, 9:30am - 12:00 at the conference room at the Wannalancit Mills, 600 Suffolk St). It should be a very informative show, so tune in!

    Wow, Lowell has a 10 year plan to end homelessness. Let’s see how many decades it takes them to (1.) create the document and then (2.) implement it.

    Maybe they can have Kelly Clarkson do a concert to End Homelessness as well.

    Lowell and its legislators are all talk. Just another reason for public officials to spend more money.

  2. Lynne Says:

    Actually, Joe, I’m with you a little on this…it’s all well and good to kick off a ten year plan, but I diverge with you in that I’d like to see it become substantive, and also, with CTI and other really great non profits involved, I expect any money spent will be spent well. However, the question for me is will they spend enough, and will it be sustained, especially past the “10 years”?

  3. Bob Forrant Says:

    Why ten years - why not five years. A five-year old child being told we have a ten year plan to get you into a decent home?? The effort makes sense, but the city needs to think long and hard about the importance of many units of affordable housing being part of whatever gets built in the so-called JAM Plan area and UMass Lowell needs to take a page from the book of lots of other urban universities around the country and link the construction of new student housing to building affordable units too. Lastly, without a focus on building affordable housing now, not later, there will be no sustained economic recovery because young people will continue to leave the region and firms will not want to relocate here when their workers cannot afford to make the move. Housing and economic development are joined at the hip; so we can not take ten years to create more well paying jobs and decent places for people to live. Marching in place is the all too frequent result of such campaigns!
