HOUSING TOWN HALL FINDINGS
More than 150 residents, elected officials, housing developers and advocates came together in five separate Housing Town Halls this fall, co-sponsored by Ensuring Opportunity and the Multi-Faith ACTION Coalition, to discuss the impact of the affordable housing crisis in Contra Costa and explore possible solutions.
Participants submitted their ideas on housing solutions that fit the needs of their community. Read a summary of the most urgent housing needs, barriers to meeting local housing needs, and solutions they would like to see happen. We analyzed common themes seen countywide (across regions), as well as specific differences among the regions.
We would like to hear your reactions to these findings. Share your thoughts HERE.
HOUSING TOWN HALLS – SAVE THE DATE
Ensuring Opportunity and the Multi-Faith ACTION Coalition will co-host five regional Housing Town Halls in September and October. Every member of the County Board of Supervisors has committed to hosting a Housing Town Hall in their district.
Everyone who lives, works or has an interest in a particular region of the county is warmly welcome to attend the Town Halls. Our goal is to share information about the scope of the housing crisis countywide and in each district, and to learn from residents how they are affected by the crisis and which solutions will most help their local community.
Please join us and add your voice to the conversation! Please invite your colleagues, friends and neighbors as well. All Town Hall events are on Saturday mornings from 9:30-noon. We’ll share additional information on event locations once confirmed.
