Please provide any further general comments that you feel should be considered in updating the Housing Element of the Ashland Comprehensive Plan (optional):
The devil is in the details. Goals should be somewhat general, but when the list is so agreeable that it is non controversial, it may not drive improvements. These goals seem that way.
Ashland is in a housing crisis. Let’s strive to be better. Also, all of these should have objective measurements. That would make things less subjective.

Why does the City of Ashland feel obligated to provide low income housing. Not everyone can live where they might want to live. I cannot afford to live in Beverly Hills and don't expect Beverly Hills to provide housing for me. There is plenty of low-income housing in surrounding communities.

Please provide any further general comments that you feel should be considered in updating the Housing Element of the Ashland Comprehensive Plan (optional):
Policy 6 is too broad. Exactly what do you have in mind? Are you going to add two or three stories to existing houses? Annex another house to create a duplex? Goal 4 is completely jargon. What do you intend to actually do? All of these questions are jargon for most people. A poorly executed survey that doesn’t really collect much useful input because no details are explained. Very bureaucratic.
