Sample Responses:

“Centennial needs more rentals, more of a mix of housing at different price points and much more affordable housing, including low income housing options.”

“Less apartments and more options for people to buy in the community. Owners are going to have more at stake than someone looking for the cheapest rent for a few years.”

“We are newly retired, have good retirement income but still, if we had to move now, we would be lucky to find anything to fit our income and future aging needs. I don't even think this is an opinion…”
