    Name: Business Workshop @ Umpqua: Putting Ideas Into Action
    Date: September 28, 2016
    Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Join us in this third of a series of Affordable Housing Forums. Now the time has come to put ideas into action.

    King County has adopted a Transit-Oriented Development Bond which allocates up to $10 million for affordable housing in the Issaquah to North Bend corridor. Our objective is to find how we can make it work.

    The agenda will include a discussion about:
    • the nearly 6000 employees who work here and live elsewhere largely due to our high housing costs
    • the cost to local businesses and loss of tax revenue due to a non-local workforce
    • population segments that are negatively impacted by housing costs
    • the increase traffic congestion caused by a mismatch of housing and jobs
    • public policies that can help foster a stronger private sector and smart development
    The intention of this forum is to include a broad representation from private, public and nonprofit sectors.

    The hopeful outcome of this forum is that the best solutions are found by having robust discussions, solid information and mutual understandings.

    Please join us and be part of the ongoing discussion and exploration to devise the best solutions for our community's future.
