Housing for growth and equity - Hosted by Christopher Auffrey
Since 2000, some Cincinnati neighborhoods have enjoyed a renaissance as part of the back to the city movement by creatives, empty nesters and others, generating substantial investment and soaring property values that have bolstered the local tax base. Yet, over the same period the number of Cincinnati households in poverty has grown by 40% while the number of affordable housing units has declined. Speakers will explore the tradeoffs between Cincinnati’s expanding affluence and changes in the availability of affordable housing, and how the city might strike a balance between attracting affluent residents and maintaining affordable housing.
