Starting with the plantation model and up through large-scale developments, we will examine the external and internal contributing factors that have led us to the affordable housing crisis we are in today, for both rentals and owned property. Examining our current situation, we will hear from a range of experts on what it’s going to take to transform the crisis into a realistic and manageable path forward for addressing the affordable housing shortage and meeting our current and future needs.
