 How 'Affordable' Housing rules often result in no homebuilding

Find out why 'affordable' housing rules too often result in no homebuilding at all

A Maui bill to increase affordability requirements is the backdrop for a discussion on how current housing policy can be improved

From Grassroot Institute, HONOLULU, March 8, 2021 >> 

The Grassroot Institute of Hawaii’s free webinar on how affordable housing rules hinder home construction in Hawaii, was a great success.

The presentation on March 8, 2021, was viewed by many key members of the community, including government officials, business executives and journalists.

A controversial proposal to increase affordability requirements on Maui was the backdrop for the discussion, and all three of our distinguished panelists made it clear that if the proposal is enacted, less housing in the county likely will be the result.

The one-hour event featured special guests David Arakawa, executive director of the Land Use Research Foundation of Hawaii; Stanford Carr, president of Stanford Carr Development; and Pamela Tumpap, president of the Maui Chamber of Commerce.

Keli‘i Akina, Grassroot Institute president, moderated the webinar, and Joe Kent, institute executive vice president, fielded questions from the audience.
