Fiano Family BUILD-PAC Golf Classic July 8, 2019 TPC River Highlands - Cromwell, CT Register Here
With 48% of renters and 27% of homeowners cost-burdened (paying more than 30% of their income on housing) in our state, we know that not enough of our housing is affordable. This IForum will explore a predominant, yet largely ignored, form of housing in Connecticut. Small multifamily housing is a traditional component of our landscape in New England, representing 26% of residences in Connecticut. Much of the existing small multifamily is smaller, aging stock. As a result, it currently offers an opportunity for many cost-burdened families to live in market rate affordable homes.
Join us and a panel of experts as we discuss “middle housing,” with a focus on opportunities to rehabilitate existing stock and expand small multifamily development through thoughtful planning and design, as well as the current impediments to its creation. Additionally, experts will explore policy considerations for preserving this important resource.
