Housing leaders discuss affordability in Lowcountry

Housing is not a problem, it is a human need — just like water — according to Charlie Smith, a real estate agent and member of the Charleston County Planning Commission. “Everybody has to have some kind of shelter. We’ve gotten away from that in the work we do,” Smith said Friday during the second annual Tri-County Housing Summit at Trident Technical College. “We’re very generous toward people who are thirsty; we’re generous toward people who are hungry and haven’t had food; but we’re not always so generous to people who don’t have a place to live.”
