Real Estate as a Catalyst for Change
October 4, 2019 Fluno Center, UW-Madison Campus
Urban renewal, redevelopment, and revitalization projects are crucial to the success of the city because it stimulates the economy, enhances property values, instills a sense of civic pride, reduces crime, and helps current businesses and attract new ones. How can the housing and finance industries serve diverse neighborhoods and residents including affordable workforce housing, special populations such as Veterans, and people in need of accessible housing? How will the housing finance system evolve to meet the challenges of home-ownership now and in the future, and how can government and industry facilitate or impede this evolution?
Join us as we discuss effective urban renewal, including the impact of revitalizations, workforce housing, and the challenges of single-family housing in Wisconsin.
