CSJ Housing Team Update and Invitation

The CSJ Housing Team is beginning the process of adding sub-committees in an effort to host a fall or winter meeting between city counselors, county commissioners, the for-profit development community and experts from Asheville who recently started using city resources (not federal dollars) to fund affordable housing. The purpose of the meeting is to help the city and county find ways to build additional affordable housing.  All members of the larger CSJ community and any concerned church members can join the sub-committees to help the project be successful. The sub-committee sign up sheet is attached to this message. If you are interested or would like more information please contact Joe Rappl at joerappl@gmail.com or (919) 567-2467.
Peace, Joe Rappl
