Homeowners and Realtors® will be the beneficiaries of a comprehensive statewide housing policy created by Gov. McDonnell. He is expected to sign an executive order this week outlining the policy objectives. It is the first time Virginia has embarked on creating a statewide executive housing policy.

At a news conference in Richmond this morning, the Governor announced the appointment of a Housing Policy Advisory Committee that will be charged with developing a housing policy for the Commonwealth. The plan is expected to cover housing related issues like homelessness, workforce housing, economic development, healthy neighborhoods, effective coordination of transportation, and environmental issues.
