We simply cannot ignore the growing homeless and eviction crisis during mass unemployment and pandemic. How often do you see the homeless in the streets? How many more tents have you seen pop up during mass unemployment because of evictions? With freezing temperatures at night, rainy days, and blistering heat during the summer months we have people outside without any resources or help. As a city we must come together and help house our homeless neighbors. Housing is a human right.
Freeze property taxes for individual homeowners who live in neighborhoods where property taxes have increased by 10% or more for three subsequent years, and who have household incomes below the Atlanta median income ($65,000).
We are going to make sure that if you make less than $65,000 a year your property taxes will NOT increase if you live in a neighborhood where property taxes have increased 10% or more 3 year in a row.
Execute development moratoriums for all multi-million dollar commercial and luxury residential developments in gentrifying neighborhoods or gentrification-vulnerable neighborhoods until Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs) establish Community Benefit Agreement guidelines for new developments.
Experts are hired by the city to work on behalf of the community to come to agreement with developers on how their projects will benefit the community. Developers must agree to these agreements to continue their projects.
Conduct inventory of vacant city owned properties that can be used as permanent or transitional housing for un-housed populations.
The city will track unused properties so they can be used to provide permanent or temporary shelter for the unhoused.
Standardize moratoriums on evictions during periods of economic, health or social crisis, including but not limited to pandemics and recessions.
No one will be evicted from their home during difficult financial times such as during pandemics and recessions.
