Affordable Housing: What Works? What Doesn't? 7:00-8:30 pm

The unavailability of enough affordable housing downtown and throughout our urban neighborhoods has been a key issue for Twin Cities leaders and many of the area’s citizens. John Cairns, member of MCC and Civic Caucus, will facilitate a lively discussion with two key leaders about the seemingly intransigent problem of providing enough affordable housing in our communities--Mark Wright, Senior Vice President, Research, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, and Craig Freeman, Ambassador at Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative. This program will lay a foundation for our further exploration of what works, why some good ideas don’t gain traction, and how we as individuals can support strong solutions. Civic Caucus is a volunteer panel of some of Minnesota’s top policy thinkers who hold provocative interviews with civic and business leaders, innovators, public officials and others on critical issues. Committed to substantive public debate, they seek to discover root cause and help community leadership make well-grounded recommendations and solutions.
