Last Saturday, Mike Simms offered an Op-Ed essay in The Dallas Morning News regarding the increasing cost of housing in the city of Dallas. Worth reading.
Here's a taste of it:
Mike Sims: Can Dallas workers afford Dallas? Everywhere you look in Dallas, we are making progress. The national bird of Texas, the construction crane, fills our skies once again. In my North Dallas neighborhood, bulldozers are knocking down $500,000 houses so $1.5 million residences can replace them. Not far from Presbyterian Hospital, thousands of low- and moderate-income apartments have been razed, and acres of vacant land stand ready for redevelopment.
I hope you'll take the time to "click in" and read it all. Simms understands what we are facing here as a community.
