Upcoming 2019 Meeting Programs and Topics

 


February 2, 2019
Priced Out-Why Care About Home Affordability?
Many people are priced out of the housing market in Johnson County. A social worker or paramedic, for example, cannot afford to purchase an average-priced home in any city in Johnson County. Having a safe, affordable home should be accessible for all, not a privilege for a select few. Learn why the lack of affordable housing in Johnson County affects the entire community and why it’s in our interest to provide more housing options in Johnson County.
