MetadataShow full item record
The shortage of affordable housing is a looming crisis in the majority of major cities in this country. The issue of providing a sufficient amount of affordable housing for low and middle income households is especially problematic in the City of Atlanta, because of its previous propensity toward sprawl development, predicted population growth, political constraints and lack of successful experiences, particularly in recent years. This thesis provides an overview of the history of public housing policy in the City of Atlanta as well as the United States. Potential solutions are presented through a synthesis of proposed comprehensive plans created by local stakeholders. The end result is a framework of potential strategies that could be utilized by local governmental agencies to promote, create and maintain a sufficient stock of affordable housing for the generations to come.
