Urban Studies Forum 2020: Attainable Housing and the Future of Prosperity & Inclusion in Pierce County
 
Access to attainable housing is a perennial challenge in American urban planning and policy. The ever-climbing housing costs in most metropolitan areas—including the South Sound—have far exceeded incomes, and every generation finds itself further distanced from the ‘American Dream.’ Cities that once produced the middle class have turned into consumers of the middle class, attracting only those that can afford their ‘lifestyles.’

This year’s annual forum will bring experts from around the nation to discuss various housing policies, their implementation, and patterns of success and failure. This will include both housing experts and regional decision makers. A panel of local policymakers will then present their approaches and strategies, while considering the wide array of presentations preceding them.
