Georgia Housing Summit: Innovating the Way to Affordability
Everyone knows housing prices are out of reach for many Georgia families, but there are few agreed-upon solutions. Join the Georgia Public Policy Foundation as we explore new approaches to harness innovation and entrepreneurship, and ensure housing is attainable for all Georgians. Panelists include Rep. Dale Washburn, Rep. Spencer Frye, Woodstock Mayor Michael Caldwell, Gwinnett County Chair Nicole Hendrickson, Decatur Mayor Patti Garrett, Atticus LeBlanc of PadSplit, Tobias Peter of AEI, Nick DiLuzio of the Forestry Foundation and more.
The conversations will include:
Where are we and how did we get there? Our experts explain the numbers and trends behind Georgia’s soaring housing costs.
Policy Innovation: State and local officials examine the issues and discuss the current challenges and opportunities.
Neighborly Innovation: Panelists from the AEI Housing Center and PadSplit offer ideas on how we can create more housing without disrupting the neighborhoods we know and love.
Lending Innovation: Panelists from financial institutions discuss how markets can provide more capital for both single-family and multifamily housing development.
Building Innovation: Panelists from the home building industry explore how new materials and methods can expand our housing stock.
The summit will conclude with a cocktail reception.
The event will be held at City Winery, 650 North Ave NE, Ponce City Market in Atlanta, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Government officials may register for the event by submitting the form below.
