Carbondale artists say they need affordable housing and studio space to help them stay in town. Nonprofit Artspace is working with the town and the creative district to buy land and build units. They’ve surveyed local artists on their housing needs. On Tuesday, Artspace presented the results to the town’s board of trustees.
