Downtown Columbia bill criticized at council hearing

Affordable housing advocates Monday expressed surprise and disappointment that the bill setting up a Downtown Columbia Partnership makes the Howard County Housing Commission responsible for administering housing funds and ensuring affordable housing requirements are met in downtown.  The commission, which is the county’s public housing authority, has been focused on providing moderate-income housing, advocates argued, noting they were hoping downtown would provide more low-income housing options.
