A Forum Sponsored by the Commonwealth Housing Task Force

Time: 8:30am – 11:00am
Location: Boston Private Bank and Trust Company (Ten Post Office Square, 2nd Floor Great Room, Boston, MA)
This event is a follow up to a forum sponsored by the Commonwealth Housing Task Force (CHTF) in 2009. We gathered municipal and civic leaders in Greater Boston to discuss strategies that communities use to help create a welcoming environment for people that traditionally have experienced challenges moving to many of the cities and towns in Massachusetts, with a focus on people of color, people with disabilities, and low-income people. In addition to hearing about strategies that towns have used since we first met, we will hear about new research related to the impact of changes in racial composition in Massachusetts communities on housing values, education spending, and other measures of quality of life.
