WHAT?

A free public summit to examine the growing housing shortage in Tompkins County, understand the impacts, and explore community-based solutions to the problem.
 

WHY?

Recent housing studies all point to the same conclusion: we are facing a housing crisis as the demand for housing outstrips the supply. Impacts include more traffic and damage to the environment, worsening social inequity, and decreasing quality of life.
 

WHO?

This event is for everyone who lives, works, studies, builds or desires a home in Tompkins County. It’s for all who love the area and are concerned about its future.
