Business in your Backyard- The Real Cost of a Housing Crisis

With housing and rent costs continuing to rise at a quicker rate than wages, we are approaching crisis levels when it comes to attainable housing. We must work together to find solutions that allow our teachers, nurses, police officers, recent college grads, our children or employees to live close to where they work. This doesn’t just stop at housing, solving this issue goes hand in hand with helping to alleviate traffic issues and improves our overall quality of life in the region.

Gain a better perspective on this issue from a panel of leaders in a variety of fields so that you can make educated decisions for our region’s future.
