What are local preference and affirmative fair marketing? Is local preference working the way people think it does? While the term seems self-explanatory, the mechanics of local preference are complex and not widely understood. Providing homes for local people and providing homes for new residents are equally important in a healthy, sustainable community, and we’ll explore how local preference is involved in that equation.
This course is open to Town board and committee members and Town staff who are directly involved in housing, including (but not limited to!):
Finance Committee, Community Preservation Committee, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, Select Board, Board of Health, Conservation Commissions, members of Affordable Housing Trusts, Housing Committee, all housing staff, planners and community development staff.
We also welcome resident housing advocates and future town leaders!
Attendance is free and pre-registration is necessary. This is a virtual workshop. We will send the Zoom link with the workshop reminder.
