Housing in Urban Centers Conference
September 14, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm$75 – $85
The Hudson Valley’s urban centers are experiencing both changes and challenges. Some are experiencing a wave of development that is creating hundreds of new housing units but raising the possibility of driving up rents or displacing long-time residents. Others are still struggling to overcome the legacy of years of blight and disinvestment, and look to find new uses for vacant and abandoned properties.
How do we create housing, economic and educational opportunities for all, while preparing our urban centers for the challenges of the 21st century in the Hudson Valley? How can urban areas spur economic development and create a mix of housing options for residents of all income levels?
Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress has invited a number of nationally recognized leaders in the field of
community development to help us answer these questions. These leaders will discuss tools, examples, and methods of successful urban revitalization strategies that can be utilized in small cities. In this solution-based forum, speakers will provide examples of best practices from other communities, and discuss successful community revitalization and affordable housing efforts from other communities.
