Regional Housing Needs
On November 6, MCCC's Infrastructure & Land Use and Economic Development Committees hosted a joint meeting featuring a special presentation by Catherine Buell and Stephen Harrington from the Greater Washington Partnership (GWP). The focus of the presentation was housing in the Washington Metropolitan Region. In September 2019, GWP along with the Urban Institute and JP Morgan Chase, released a research report about the Washington Region facing serious housing challenges that undermine residents well-being.
GWP presented an overview of their study and a discussion and Q&A followed. Interesting insights included the need for housing at all levels, the need for different kinds of housing, and how accessible/affordable housing relates directly to employee attraction/retention.
