Highlights:

Charlotte Case Study: Housing Strategies for Growth

Pamela Wideman from the City of Charlotte will share about strategies Charlotte has identified and implemented to address housing issues and homelessness. In particular, she will share about Charlotte's Affordable Housing Programs, the Housing Trust Fund activities, and Ten-Year Plan to End and Prevent Homelessness.

Trends in Market Demographics/Housing Supply

John Hunt from MarketNsight will present data illustrating how first-time home-buying millennials and down-sizing baby boomers are more than willing to give up home and lot size in exchange for living closer to amenities. The presentation will include local and national data, and how developers and home builders can use this data to develop competitive products that meet the needs of the community.

Missing Middle Housing

Tony Perez from Opticos Design, a nationally recognized architecture and urban design firm, will share about missing middle home types, which can help build “hidden density” that supports local businesses and public transportation. The presentation will cover benefits and challenges of this housing strategy.

The Summit will take place at Converse College (580 E. Main Street, Spartanburg, SC 29302).
