But the reality is these families are already home.</span> <br> </div> <div> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;">Even more concerning is that this issue is not confined to just the Periwinkle, Las Casitas, and Weldon Court mobile home residents. There are 425 mobile home parks in the city. As more people move to our city, we have to find ways to accommodate new development without displacing residents.</span> </div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7

Now, they are wading into local issues by prohibiting cities from protecting future homeowners and renters alike from housing discrimination.   </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Prohibiting source of income discrimination is not only a necessary piece of our housing toolbox; Phoenix residents, particularly the elderly, have been vocal about the need to remove this barrier. They have spent hours at City Council meetings sharing how they’ve struggled to keep housing or have been outright denied housing. One speaker shared how many of her elderly peers have ended up living on the streets; another shared that without the support of her recently deceased husband, she has struggled to make ends meet.  </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>As today's speakers highlighted, Phoenicians should not have to wait 3-5 years on a Section 8 Voucher waitlist, only to be turned away from using that very voucher. The City of Phoenix, which is in the middle of a housing affordability crisis, currently has over 15,000 residents on that wait list. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Our job as City Councilmembers is to listen to our residents and take action to move our communities forward together. Yet, just like selling confiscated guns, the City of Phoenix must follow the laws established by State lawmakers – regardless of their negative impact on our residents.  </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>I urge State lawmakers to pass policies that return control to local governments, such as Representative Longdon's bill HB 2191, which would allow cities and towns to pass their own policies without fear of financial penalties from the State."<br></div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7
