Last year, the City commissioned a child care needs assessment to measure the growing shortage of availability of childcare.

In 2013, the 72-unit apartment complex at 531 Woodside Road caught fire  and construction is anticipated to start at the end of this year.  Per a loan agreement from the City, units in the building must be affordable to low-income households until the year 2058.
