Rising housing costs have created an unsustainable burden for residents of Denver. When neighborhoods say “no” to home construction, they are denying current residents options for attainable homes, and denying newcomers a home in their desired neighborhood. The housing crisis creates longer commutes, higher levels of pollution, and a lower quality of life. Denver must build new housing in every neighborhood. Yes In My Back Yard!
