One solution, offered Wednesday by Mayor Pro Tem Scott Wagner, would boost Kansas Citians’ property tax rate to raise about $4 million per year — or an estimated $41 million over its 10-year life. If the Council passes the proposal, it will appear on the November ballot for voters to weigh in.

‘There’s just not enough scooters’: KC councilman pursues tax for affordable housing: https://www.kansascity.com/news/politic ... 04395.html
That's something, but doesn't sound like a lot of money. What would be done with the 41m? Rehabs? New construction? I would hope that teardowns of all but the decrepit-beyond-rehab would stop. Affordable housing may not be 1 bedroom/person, living, dining, open concept, bonus room and granite countertops and vanities. It might mean a good roof, toilets and hvac that work. What are the expectations?
