    I am somewhat encouraged by this plan for more affordable housing as it is desperately needed. The part l find very worrisome is the inclusion of families and seniors but no mention of those who are empty nesters yet 10-15 years shy of being considered a senior. Is there a place for couples and singles who require affordable housing? From what l have read there is no mention of this particular group and housing for them. If for example you are over-housed due to your last child moving out. You are then waitlisted for a one bedroom. These are difficult to get due to the low numbers of one bedrooms built and the less frequent turnaround. I know someone who has been living in a two bedroom apartment as a single for 30 years. This is part of the issue with housing that also needs to be discussed.
