Comments & Feedback
Hello Council members,
This is a first for me as I am a recent home owner in Lakewood as of 2018 but I drove by the hearing sign yesterday and felt I needed to share my opinion. When I see a proposal like this come to the table for more affordable ownership opportunities, it hits home for me and I pray that others my age do not have to experience what I went through. I was originally looking to purchase new, hoping for a 3 bed condo or townhouse but there was just nothing available. After probably 5 months of searching I settled on a 65 year old 2 bed house that was luckily remodeled in 2015. I couldn't afford a brand new house and had to compromise on size, location, and even the type of house I wanted. I currently live next to some older apartments where I deal with criminal activity on a regular basis now. All I can say regarding this hearing is that I am extremely disappointed that there weren't more options available to me to purchase when I was looking to buy. All that seemed to be built at the time were new apartments for rent or new million dollar houses for sale (which majority of us obviously can't afford). I was very eager to have a new, energy efficient home that was maintained by an HOA but instead I ended up with my detached house that I maintain on a daily basis just to keep it from falling apart. While I love that my house isn't attached to neighbors like a townhouse or condo the rest is just not worth it. All I ask that you consider people like me, working full time who want to live in a new energy efficient and up to date home, when making your decision. Please vote to approve and provide more affordable ownership options for first time home buyers like myself.
