IndyStar housing video

IndyStar reporter Kaitlin Lange and visual journalist Kelly Wilkinson interviewed HAND Executive Director Jennifer Miller for a front-page story and online video about the growing need for more affordable housing options in the suburbs. The article, which ran in the Aug. 11 newspaper, focused on seniors who are ready to downsize but can’t find a smaller home in their price range.

Also in Sunday’s newspaper, reporter John Tuohy covered another effort to expand housing choice: Fishers is considering a revision to its Unified Development Ordinance that would reduce the minimum square foot requirement for new homes. Although the change won’t necessarily translate into less expensive sales prices, it would provide greater diversity in housing options. Subscribers can read that story here.
