Affordable Housing Crisis in Charlottesville

The city of Charlottesville continues to struggle with an ongoing housing crisis stemming from limited land for housing development and a high amount of demand from UVA students. WUVA met with Sharon Bryant, a Charlottesville resident who moved to Waynesboro after rental prices began to increase, managing attorney at the Charlottesville Office of Legal Aid Justice Center Elaine Poon, and community organizers Michael Payne and Don Gathers to address the housing issue and how it can be solved.
