Webcast to Focus on Dynamics of Mixed-Income Communities

MARCH 6, 2013 - 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET


The movement to create mixed-income housing options began 20 years ago when federal, local and private programs began using this strategy to encourage social mobility and avoid concentrations of affordable housing in lower-income neighborhoods.  This online session – Dynamics of Mixed-Income Communities – will explore the evolution of mixed-income housing communities and include an update on housing markets nationwide. A panel discussion will focus on what’s needed to build mixed-income communities, how neighborhoods are expected to change throughout this process, technical issues including income mix percentages, shared amenities, and the physical design of market and affordable housing. A close look at the human and practical aspects of such programs will be discussed as well as the future of this practice.  Panelists include Laura Tack (ethnographer and assistant professor) from Cornell University, Mark Joseph (associate professor) from Case Western Reserve University and Paul Freitag (managing director of Rose Development) from Jonathan Rose Companies.
