Housing Squeeze

Decatur's made plenty of headlines lately, and here's another one, courtesy of the hyper-local blog Decaturish: "RENT: CITY TURNS TO APARTMENTS IN HOUSING CRUNCH." It's a thought-provoking analysis of that timeworn tug-o-war: quality-of-life versus cost-of-living. The author, who sees a glimmer of hope in some 600 pending apartments near the city's core, begins: "There's a rush on Decatur real estate right now, and it's putting the city further out of reach for people who aren't rich ? I like living here. I'd like to start a family here. It's not going to be easy." [Decaturish]
