State task force to look at housing

Sep. 6—ELKHART — Relaxing zoning rules or finding ways to cut the extra costs that go into homebuilding are some of the proposals that could come out of a special panel looking at housing shortages across the state.

The Indiana Housing Task Force will hold the first of three meetings at the end of this month, with the goal of having recommendations ready to give by November. The panel will meet on Sept. 29, Oct. 20 and Oct. 27.
