(Richmond, IN)--study by the Eastern Indiana Regional Planning Commission shows that people are driving up to 50 miles to work in the region but don’t live here because there is not adequate housing. The study shows that more than half of our area’s homes were built before 1960. The number of vacant homes has grown from five to 12% since 2000. And, only five percent of rental properties have been built since 2000. A committee is being formed to come up with recommendations.
