Neighbors for More Neighbors stands up for more housing for everyone in Central Ohio.
Our Platform: More homes
What kinds of housing do we support?

New residents are a social gain—not a burden.
We envision a future where everyone has access to high quality housing they can afford. Unfortunately, each year there are more people in our community struggling to find housing they can afford.
In Franklin County, 43% of households spend more than 30% of their income on housing. This indicates they are housing cost-burdened—meaning they don’t have enough income for other essential costs like food and healthcare.
The average American will move 11.7 times in their lifetime. Everyone should have the option to find housing that meets their current life circumstances, without leaving the neighborhoods they love.
In order to achieve this, neighborhoods should offer a variety of housing types. Central Ohio no longer has a housing stock that matches our dynamic housing needs.
Apartments are part of our heritage.
Much of our multifamily housing
has been demolished.
It’s past time to rebuild our city. All Central Ohio residents deserve safe, secure, and abundant housing.
What kinds of policies can help
move the needle on housing?
This list is not exhaustive and is in no particular order.
- Streamlining permitting processes
- Eliminating parking requirements
- Encouraging transit-oriented development
- Zoning to allow for higher-density housing
- Inclusionary zoning policies
- Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
