Victory for Grassroots Organizing! ACORN Welcomes Ontario Housing Regulations

Alejandra Ruiz-Vargas, Ontario ACORN Housing spokesperson says, “The government listened to the community and ACORN looks forward to ensuring these new municipal tools will be used to create the desperately needed affordable housing in Ontario’s cities. We are pleased to see, in these Inclusionary Zoning regulations, Ontario giving the municipalities options and flexibility to create affordable housing that is appropriate to local needs.”

Now that municipalities across the province will have the tools to increase affordable housing, ACORN is committed to ensuring that these tools are used effectively. We must hold the cities to account to secure housing that meets the needs of low and moderate income Ontarians. This includes redefining “affordable housing”, to guarantee that the definition used will meet the needs of our most marginalized community members.

ACORN Canada (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is an independent national organization of low- and moderate-income families, founded and incorporated in 2004. We have over 113,000 members organized into 24 active neighbourhood chapters in seven cities across Canada. We believe that social and economic justice can best be achieved with a national active membership who are invested in their organization and focused on building power for change.

The City Council said Camarillo is in escrow with the property owners, and the council voted unanimously to remove contaminated soil from the property as part of what City Attorney Brian Pierik called the “due diligence phase” of the purchase.

Ventura-based Rincon Consultants found the western side of the land to be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, about 2 feet down from the surface.

PAHs are molecules found in coal, tar deposits and pollution from fuel not completely burned up in engines and fires, and they are believed to be carcinogens.

The city and Atlanta-based Building Materials and Construction Services, commonly called BMC, will split the $156,000 cost to remove contaminated soil from the property at 2800 Barry St. and fill in the excavated area with clean soil.

The city is in escrow to buy the land from BMC in anticipation of building affordable housing. The land was bought

acorn housing?

Has anybody heard of them? Used them? Or know somebody who has? We're fist time home owners, and need a little help-they seem legit and have alot to offer..anybody have an opinion on these kinds of programs?

I've met with them before, they are legit. They help with first time home buyers with mortgages and finding low income homes. They didn't ask for a fee, but there is a charge to become a member, but I don't know if its required.
