Finding a place to live in Southcentral can be hard. Some of our housing stock is old. And different populations have different needs, such as seniors, workforce renters, and buyers looking for that first starter home, or to upgrade to a larger house as the family grows.
This discussion isn’t new, but it’s time for an update.
We’ve invited local government, finance and housing experts to lay out the landscape on housing issues today, and explain strategies underway to ease the need.
