Two weeks ago, a five-year homeless plan was unveiled called Pathways Home, where the city and county have taken a leadership role, bringing in other related groups to help get to what’s called Functional Zero.

Fox is the executive director of Habitat for Humanity of the Greater La Crosse Region and we talked how both she and Habitat are involved in that plan.

Also spent a good portion of the show on ADUs, which the city has zoning rules against. The city council, back in December, put off a decision for 60 days on rezoning to allow for these, what can also be called garage apartments or guest houses.
