Metro Mayors Coalition Announce Regional Housing Partnership

Metro Mayors Coalition Announce Regional Housing Partnership

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 – The Metropolitan Mayors Coalition created a housing task force to tackle housing needs in their communities through both preservation and production. The initiative will focus on meeting the needs of wide array of incomes and family types, while stemming displacement of existing residents. MAPC communities outside the Coalition are encouraged to join in this exciting endeavor.

“Limited housing supply makes it very difficult for residents to find places to live, and means employers have a harder time recruiting and retaining workers,” explained our executive director, Marc Draisen. “We need housing that works for a variety of household types and incomes, from renters to first-time homebuyers to families with children, empty-nesters, seniors, and those with disabilities.”
