Tri-County Regional Planning Commission hosts Virtual Town Hall to discuss housing in the region
HousingDrives assessment leads community in dialogue about housing needs
LANSING, Mich. — The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is hosting a Virtual Town Hall via Zoom on Thursday, June 30, 12-1 p.m. to discuss housing in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties. This is an opportunity for community members to learn about the study so far and share what they see as housing priorities in the region as a part of the HousingDrives project.
HousingDrives intends to help local stakeholders better understand and address the existing trends and barriers of the housing market in the Greater Lansing region. Once completed, the outcomes can be used by community leaders to make informed decisions about investing in housing for all residents.
Residents, businesses, and community leaders have expressed that the tri-county region does not have the attainable housing that existing and potential residents desire. The Virtual Town Hall discussion aims to address this topic and explore what housing support the community needs for the region’s economic vitality and meaningful future development of our urban and rural communities.
