2020 Strategic Planning Process Talks Housing this Thursday

The second of four Decatur 202 Zoom discussions — this time on housing affordability — is scheduled for 4-6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 10.

Make sure you’re plugged into the conversation by registering here.

The presentation and discussion format for the two-hour housing session is similar across all four of our scheduled topic meetings. Check out the initial session explainer for a context-setter about the process in general and the 202 phase in particular. And for an example of how we set up small group discussions with introductory presentations, see the video under Transportation & Mobility at this link.

The first 202 encouraged — and got — a vigorous conversation on how to reconcile two Decatur ambitions that aren’t always compatible: Our dependence on automobiles and the road and parking infrastructure they require and our determination to expand pedestrian, biking, and transit alternatives. For the upcoming housing session, we’ll confront the increasing demand  for housing accessible to middle class, workforce, and lower income families and how — using a variety of planned policy, zoning, and financial strategies — it can be addressed.

See you there.
