ACORN, and allies from Parkdale People's Economy, Progress Toronto, and Social Planning Toronto held a townhall on winning affordable housing, through the creation of a bold inclusionary zoning policy on April 28th. Over 200 Torontonians attended to learn about inclusionary zoning, develop collective demands and make a plan to get more organized and build the movement to push city councillors to stand up to developers and implement our demands.
Inclusionary zoning is a policy that would require new developments to set aside a percentage of each building as affordable housing.
ACORN, Parkdale People's Economy, Progress Toronto and Social Planning Toronto are demanding a bold inclusionary zoning policy that requires 20% to 30% of every new development with 60 units or more is set aside as
- Deeply affordable
- Rental housing
- In every part of the city
In June the city will have a final vote on inclusionary zoning, now is the time to get involved in pushing your councillors and reaching out to neighbours to build the movement for a city that's affordable. People over profit!
