"Housing Shortage in Janesville? The Links Between Housing and Economic Development". Gale Price, Director of Economic Development for the City of Janesville, will examine the connections between the availability of housing stock and general economic development of Janesville area.

Among the topics he will address:

  • How well does the current level of different types of houses and apartments meet the city's current and anticipated needs as we try to attract new businesses to the community?

  • To the extent that there is a housing shortage in the area, what programs/policies can local government use to stimulate the development of new housing and the improvement of existing housing units?

The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion of the issues.
