Grand Haven’s housing future? Look to the past

Community leaders say accessibility to affordable housing remains a key issue for the area. The Housing Next group is in the process of looking at ways to address the lack of affordable housing.

Holly Johnson, co-chairperson of Housing Next, said recent estimates of the shortage of affordable housing units in our county have grown to nearly 15,000 units — a number that she said is “discouraging” to her and others involved in the group.
