The city has been struggling with a housing shortage for years, and the situation has only gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is hoping that by making it easier for developers to build new housing, they will be able to help alleviate the shortage.
The city has taken a number of steps to make it easier for developers to build new housing. They have streamlined the permitting process, and they have also made it easier for developers to get financing. The city has also been working to increase the supply of land available for development.
The city's efforts are starting to show some results.
