Join us for a panel discussion and tour of Albertina Kerr's new Net-Zero Energy, Accessible and Affordable housing development, Wynne Watts Commons! Panelists will include Allison Stark, CEO for project Owner Albertina Kerr, Carly Harrison, with project’s Developer Edlen & Company, and Alex Boetzel, with project’s sustainability consultant Green Hammer (former role).

Albertina Kerr is a local nonprofit that “empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, and other social barriers to lead self-determined lives and reach their full potential.”

As part of this mission, Kerr has recently opened Wynne Watts Commons, which offers 150 affordable units, 30 of which are universally accessible. On top of creating accessible and affordable housing for the residents of Gresham, Oregon’s Wilkes East Neighborhood, Wynne Watts is also sustainable! The solar panels on the roof of the complex provide enough electricity to make this building net-zero.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about how Albertina Kerr was able to develop such an innovative project. RSVP to reserve your spot!
