Athens News Matters: WUGA/Habitat for Humanity Highlights

Here are some highlights from the Athens Area Habitat for Humanity/WUGA Housing Code Hack, held at the Athens-Clarke County Library earlier this week. The hack addressed Athens’ affordable housing crisis – the city lacks sufficient housing, and the housing that does exist is too expensive for many.

We hear from Habitat Executive Director Spencer Frye, Mayor Kelly Girtz, builder Michael Songster, ACC Commissioner Ovita Thornton and civil engineer Jon Williams. The entire forum will be broadcast on a special edition of Athens News Matters next Friday and Sunday at our usual time.
