Housing Affordability and Economic Development in New Mexico

As a small business owner/employee, what are your thoughts on the connections between affordable housing and the economy in New Mexico?

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on the connections between affordable housing and economic development in New Mexico! Your perspective as a small business owner/employee is so important and valuable. 

Using your text and photo, we will create Photo Quotes to compile stories from small business owners and employees to share on our social media channels and with municipal legislators in hopes that they choose to sponsor and support ordinances that will make our housing more affordable and sustainable. We will provide you with a preview for approval before sharing your Photo Quote.

Please provide a quote, from 1 to 3 sentences long, about the connections you see between having local, affordable housing and economic development in New Mexico. As prompts, consider the following questions:


How could we better provide affordable housing opportunities to community members in order to support our small businesses? Feel free to share outside-the-box ideas.


What barriers to providing more affordable housing to our community members do you see? How has that affected your business/ability to work?


Has the rise of local housing costs and/or the decrease of local housing inventory affected you personally, your business, your employees, or otherwise? How so?
