County Commission Chair Nathan Miller's Letter to Boone Town Council

Nathan Miller, chairman of the Watauga County Board of Commissioners has recently written the following letter to the Boone town council. Miller obviously understands the cost to the county if the Boone Planning Commissions's proposal on "Affordable Housing" were to pass.......housing costs would go up and the county would lose millions on the value of the old High School property....not to mention the tax loss to both the county and the town should the HS Site not be developed...

Here's his letter....

Restricting the supply of available housing is not going to make housing any more affordable! Students don't need housing that is specifically designed for them. They also live in single family homes throughout the town and county. Making 'student housing' less available will assure that rental prices on these homes remains high. How does that translate to "affordable housing"?

Nathan Miller is right!

It makes it only affordable to those that join together so each can rent a room for almost half as much as it should take to rent the three bedroom house. It kills the ability for working families to rent a house.
