The Housing Affordability Crisis: A Panel Discussion

We will hold a panel discussion February 27 from 6-8 pm at the Girl Scout Headquarters 445 East 4500 South. 

Historically low vacancy rates, high rental rates, outdated zoning requirements, governmental barriers, and a lack of funding all contribute to a systemic housing crisis. Join a panel of housing experts and advocates to discuss the current landscape of housing in Salt Lake City, the impediments to more fully addressing the current crisis, and what can be done to make a significant impact in providing housing stability to people no matter their income.

Questions we will try to answer are:

  • WHO needs affordable housing?
  • WHAT is affordable housing?
  • WHEN does someone need that housing?
  • WHERE is this an SLC problem, or a state problem, or perhaps even a national problem?
  • WHY is it so hard to provide affordable housing?

Panelists will include:

  • Michael Akerlow – CEO, Community Development Corporation of Utah (moderator)
  • Melissa Jensen – Director, Housing and Neighborhood Development, Salt Lake City Corporation
  • Nick Norris – Director of Planning, Salt Lake City Corporation
  • Chris Parker – Managing Member, Giv Development and Executive Director, Giv Communities
