Attainable Housing with Toni Foran: perspective of a City Planner

In this episode, Toni and I discuss her experiences as a city planner with Hurricane, Utah. She served for over 20 years in various roles supporting cities, and she has insights on accessory dwelling units, transit-oriented development, and a variety of other aspects of affordable and attainable housing.

One of my favorite quotes from this interview was when we were talking about accessory dwelling units and how they have recently been pulled out of the affordable market by high demand for vacation short-term rentals. Toni said, “Short-term may be more lucrative, but man, I would rather have the people that are renting from me wash their own sheets.” I think there is definitely some wisdom there to consider.
