Over a year after voters shot down a city proposal to provide money to address affordable housing issues, the city’s new housing commission is discussing whether the city should try again in 2020.

At just the commission’s second meeting since it was created by Flagstaff City Council last year, most commissioners agreed they should at least begin doing the work of creating the bond for the election this November. Then, if the commission is unready to get a bond on the ballot in 2020, they are already ahead for 2022.

But Catherine Esquivel pushed her follow commissioners to move faster. While they may want more time to discuss a potential bond, Esquivel said some Flagstaff residents can’t wait until 2022.
