They believe inadequate housing will result in increased traffic and eight students to a rental home in residential areas.

 

A housing task force of community residents and city and university leaders is recommending forty percent of the students should live on campus.

 

And with our rental vacancy rate below one percent, that means we'll have to build.

 

Bill Bernardy served on the task force.

 

"You know the real message we crunched the numbers and what we need is housing to be what we need.  You can't just hope it happens.  It has to be a priority."

 

Bernardy had concerns about the influx of students moving in on the westside, but feels it can be accommodated with minimal problems, if the university builds adequate housing with sufficent amenities to attract students.
