Housing Affordability and Community Revitalization

Idea Category: Housing, Safety Net

Seven NewDEALers have risen to the office of Mayor just this year, and their impact is already being felt. This week, Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird announced a new tax incentive to support home buyers in certain neighborhoods as part of her community revitalization strategy. In coverage of the announcement, a local realtor talks about how the initiative could help influence a younger demographic to put down roots in Lincoln. The Mayor has also taken steps to make Lincoln a more welcoming place for all, such as signing an anti-discrimination order in November.
