READI PROGRAM TO ADDRESS RICHMOND HOUSING SHORTAGE

(Richmond, IN)--Our area is now a few days into an official partnership called READI, which stands for Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative. One of the focuses of that program will be housing and commercial development. Nearly 9000 people commute into East Central Indiana every day for work. Vacant house has increased from 11 percent in 2010 to 13 percent last year. Economic experts say the lack of desirable housing completely negates talent attraction efforts. Now, READI will help to make available 150 acres for housing development. It includes a project known as Richmond Rising.
