Advisory council hopes to ‘change the conversation’ about public housing in Huntsville

A group formed to help improve the Huntsville Housing Authority’s tarnished public image met for the first time this week. The 17-person Affordable Housing Advisory Council includes pastors, neighborhood and business leaders, city department heads, the local NAACP chapter president and City Councilman Bill Kling. Housing authority Executive Director Michael Lundy created the volunteer group to be a sounding board when the agency wants to convert a house, duplex or apartment building into public housing. Its members are also tasked with helping their friends, neighbors and business associates better understand the agency’s goal of expanding affordable housing opportunities.
