City of Decatur to Host Housing Summit: Everyone’s invited

The City of Decatur invites the community to contribute to a conversation on inclusive and affordable housing, Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. in the Manuel J. Maloof Auditorium, 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur.

The day-long Summit will help attendees establish a shared understanding of Decatur’s housing context, define the often subjective term affordability as it relates to Decatur, explore viable approaches and strategies, and conclude with ways for all participants to be a part of local solutions.

Mayor Patti Garrett said, “Through the Housing Summit, we want to define Decatur-driven strategies that reflect community expectations about affordable and inclusive housing.”

The Summit includes a combination of speakers; round-table, small group community conversations; and interactive components inviting consideration, collaboration, and collective action moving forward.

Everyone within the community is invited including residents, business owners, employees, and others who simply want to contribute to this fundamental issue. The Summit is free and includes lunch but participants must register to attend so there is an accurate head-count for planning purposes.
