Councilman Kenyatta Johnson (2nd District) recently wrote a commentary in the Philadelphia Inquirer re-affirming his commitment to striking a balance between market-rate and affordable housing in City neighborhoods.
Read the commentary in its entirety on philly.com. An excerpt is posted below:
“The reformed process for selling city-owned property goes through the Land Bank, an initiative I supported and voted for in Council. With the Land Bank, anyone can express interest in a city-owned lot online. Land Bank policy requires competitive bidding for most city-owned land. If there are no competing bids, the price is generally set by an independent appraisal.
