Ask the residents of any city or town in America whether they’re dealing with a housing crisis, and they’ll probably say yes. How do we create more affordable housing for rent and purchase? It’s not about massive government subsidies or building endless suburban developments on the edge of town. It’s about saying “yes” to all types of housing.

On this tour stop, Strong Towns housing expert, Daniel Herriges, and principal architect and landscape architect at Flintlock Lab, Alli Quinlan, talk about the sorts of housing that can meet different needs for your neighbors, and creative ways to get your city on board with promoting and allowing diverse housing types.

The course is worth 1 continuing education credit through the AICP.
