Housing as a Component of Economic Development
Wednesday, December 12, 2018
In this episode of CERCONOMY, VP of Municipal Services, Courtney Hendricson, and President & CEO Bob Santy, discuss the topic of housing as a critical component of local economic development - a follow-up to their presentation at the Connecticut Housing Coalition Conference.
With populations changing, municipalities need to consider the importance of housing to local economic development. Housing makes up approximately 70% of a town's assets, and town services are supported by property taxes, so it is critical that municipalities take a more inclusive approach and make investments where the demands are.
