One of the most effective ways to encourage positive thinking about affordable housing in Trumansburg is to speak at the Trumansburg Planning Board meetings. Usually there is a period of time reserved for public comment – here’s where you can make a difference!
Public Comments are limited to 3 minutes per speaker, so you needn’t prepare a lengthy treatise. There are a number of topics that are appropriate:
- Home prices that are out of reach for many who work in Trumansburg
- High rents
- Declining and aging population of the village
- Declining school population, due to in-affordability of housing for young families
- The local, regional and national need for more affordable housing
- Telling your own story
If you are ready to speak out, feel free to contact us for further ideas.
