Panel seeks to quantify county-wide housing crisis

The League of Women Voters panel discussion “Gimme Shelter” delved into the affordable housing issue in San Juan County and tried to answer some lingering questions: Is there a crisis here in the county? What is the risk to the community if we don’t solve the crisis? What factors make this issue so difficult to resolve? More than 50 people attended the event Sept. 21, which featured affordable housing advocates from the community on the panel and in the audience.
