Housing and the Community (03-16-2016): Housing plays a significant role in community development. Housing conditions set the stage for further investment in this vital portion of your municipality tax base. This program teaches how housing impacts your municipality tax base, service delivery, and the impacts that positive or negative housing values may have on your community. The program examines ways you may be able to better frame housing issues in your community, as well as illustrate the importance and benefits of effective housing policies. The program also explores local housing policies in the context of recent changes to the federal Fair Housing laws.
