Speak Out

One of the most effective ways to encourage positive thinking about affordable housing in Trumansburg is to speak at the Trumansburg Planning Board meetings.  Usually there is a period of time reserved for public comment – here’s where you can make a difference!

Public Comments are limited to 3 minutes per speaker, so you needn’t prepare a lengthy treatise.  There are a number of topics that are appropriate:

  • Home prices that are out of reach for many who work in Trumansburg
  • High rents
  • Declining and aging population of the village
  • Declining school population, due to in-affordability of housing for young families
  • The local, regional and national need for more affordable housing
  • Telling your own story

If you are ready to speak out, feel free to contact us for further ideas.
