Councilmember Evan Glass to Introduce Legislation Raising $100 Million for Affordable Housing and School Construction

For Immediate Release: Thursday, October 10, 2019

From the Office of Councilmember Evan Glass

ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 10, 2019—On Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019 at 12:30 p.m., Councilmember Evan Glass will hold a press conference discussing his new bill, the Housing Impact Fairness Act, which would raise $100 million for affordable housing and school construction over the next decade.

The Housing Impact Fairness Act will close a loophole so that all new residential construction in Montgomery County fairly contributes to the jurisdiction’s infrastructure needs. Currently, newly rebuilt homes (aka “teardowns”) do not contribute to the impact fees collected on all other newly built residences.

This event is open to the press.

  • Councilmember Evan Glass, At-Large
  • Montgomery County Education Association

  • Montgomery County Parents and Teachers
