Affordable Housing in the Suburbs

Today's Pioneer Press has an article well worth reading, headlined "The War Over Affordable Housing." It's part one in a series of three about the issue of affordable housing in the Twin Cities, and I think it's well worth reading -- both to understand the nature of the problem and the community need (working families, often young and thus at the lower end of the wage scale, who can't afford to pay the market rate for housing in the suburbs), and also the opposition that "affordable housing" often engenders.

There's also a map that shows per capita affordable housing in various metro communities, including Maplewood.
