City Council creates housing advisory committee

In response to feedback from residents about how to address Piedmont’s affordable housing shortage at the Feb. 1 meeting, the City Council approved a resolution creating a Piedmont Housing Advisory Committee. The Housing Advisory Committee will consist of five to seven members to be appointed by the City Council. Application forms to serve on City committees and commissions, including the Housing Advisory Committee, will be posted to the City website soon.
