Friday Forums 2024 – Following the Numbers: Affordable Housing & Density

Tacoma is experiencing a housing crisis and an identity crisis as it grapples with the increasing need for affordable housing and greater density. How do we know what and where to build, and how do we measure the impacts – both intentional and unintentional? Join us for a panel digging into the data behind affordable housing and density, and how communities can grow with change.

This free Friday Forum panel event was held on March 29th from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in person at the University of Washington Tacoma in Milgard Hall Room 110, and virtually over Zoom. Featuring panelists Dr Anaid Yerena (University of Washington Tacoma), Jeff Dade (Homestead Community Land Trust), and Nicholas Carr (Tacoma Housing Authority). Moderated by Tanisha Jumper (Tacoma Public Schools).

Thank you to UW Tacoma’s Office of Community Partnerships for supporting these forums by providing us with an in-person space.
