authorStaff Writer on Apr 28, 2022

Nantucket, Sedona, Vail — resort communities all around the country struggled with a lack of affordable housing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the pandemic only exacerbated the issue. A growing problem became a full-blown crisis almost overnight as shutdowns and the possibility of remote work led to unprecedented sales to wealthy second-home buyers and displaced the local, year-round working families who help those communities function. Express News Group features editor Michelle Trauring, who recently asked a number of affordable housing officials from communities that are similar in nature to the East End how they are tackling the crisis, joins the podcast this week to discuss the challenges and the solutions.
