edited by John Emmeus Davis
Forced in the 1980s to develop new sources of funding, municipalities are now creating new strategies for producing housing citizens can afford. One of the most promising of those schemes is third sector housing, a private non market alternative to publicly owned projects. The ten essays comprising The Affordable City provide case studies of political struggles to move toward this model in such cities as Burlington, Boston, and San Diego.
Part I: Components and Dilemmas of a Third Sector Housing Policy
Part II: Third Sector Housing in Action: Policies, Programs, and Plans
