Sonia T. Siu is a member of the Class of 2007 of Washington and Lee University.Capstone; [FULL-TEXT FREELY AVAILABLE ONLINE]The Rockbridge Area faces a great change in its culture and heritage if it does not address the quantity of available workforce housing. It has made strives with Threshold and the Buck Hill Community Project. As it moves forward on this issue it can learn from these experiences as well as from other areas' projects. Most importantly, the area's government, non-profits, and private entities must learn to collaborate in this effort. If they address this issue by increasing supply, and increasing working households' abilities to demand housing, they can achieve a superior match of supply and demand. Thus they will be able to provide more households with quality, affordable homes. [From Conclusions]Sonia Siu
