While I have called for NO increase in density within the Catoctin District and I have called for a temporary moratorium on home building and the issue of building permits west of Route 15, the key to economic growth in Loudoun County is diversity of housing stock in eastern Loudoun near the new Silver Line Metro Stations.  We must implement an affordable-housing platform which provides policies and funding sources designed to support low-income tax credit (LIHTC) transactions and attracts large-scale, multi-family rental and for-sale housing options for teachers, police officers, fire fighters, service industry workers and County employees.   In addition to more workforce-housing, we should also invest in permanent supportive housing for disabled residents, senior housing, veterans housing, and housing suitable for a young, tech-savvy workforce.  Diversity in housing stock is an essential ingredient for a healthy and vibrant economy.  Loudoun cannot continue to grow or maintain its current standard of living without addressing the full spectrum of housing needs.
