Overview

How does the event meet a specific planning related training objective? 

Mountain town and resort communities acutely affected by a shortage of workforce housing. At this session, attendees will learn

      How to develop effective housing policies. Attendees will learn about successes and lessons learned from their respective communities, and the facilitator will provide guidance on policy frameworks in use throughout the industry.

      Promote equitable, affordable housing. Expand location- and energy-efficient housing choices for people of all ages, incomes, races, and ethnicities to increase mobility and lower the combined cost of housing and transportation.

      Identify funding strategies. Attendees will be led by the facilitator about possible funding opportunities and strategies that can be developed for specific housing issues.

      Support existing communities. Target funding toward existing communities—through strategies like transit oriented, mixed-use development, and land recycling—to increase community revitalization and the efficiency of public works investments and safeguard rural landscapes.

 

 

The roundtable is intended to be a peer exchange regarding emerging trends and best practices for workforce housing in Mountain Towns.
