Event description
What can historic preservationists do to retain and grow affordable housing in Chicago neighborhoods?

About this Event

Does historic preservation contribute to the reduction of affordable housing in communities? Does it promote affordable housing? Anecdotally, there are stories that support a “yes” answer to both questions. A more important question is: What can the historic preservation movement do to support the growth of affordable housing and insure that existing affordable housing in an area is better retained? What tools do we have now to accomplish those goals, and what new tools do we need?

Preservation Chicago will moderate a panel discussion including:

1. 25th Ward Alderman Byron Sigcho-Lopez

2. Marisa Novara, Commissioner, Department of Housing (not yet confirmed)

3. Peter Holsten, Holsten Development

4. Win Curran, Associate Professor at DePaul University who studies affordable housing and gentrification

5. Alyssa Frystak, author of report “Small But Mighty: Combating the Affordable Housing Crisis Through Small-Scale Historic Rehabilitation”
