The National Housing Conference will hold a series of webinars addressing sustainable development in the Washington, D.C. region. The series will cover how transit-oriented development and other sustainable development practices can aid communities in their efforts to overcome scarce resources, a political climate wary of public spending, and other challenges brought about by the economic recession.
On Wednesday, July 27, Danilo Pelletiere, NLIHC Research Director and Chief Economist, will speak on a webinar titled, “Budget-Oriented Development: Local Efforts to Overcome Fiscal Challenges and Create Sustainable Communities.” He will join Matt Ladd, Senior Planner, Fairfax County, and Jennifer Smith, Columbia Pike Initiative Coordinator, Arlington County.
On Thursday, August 4, David Bowers, NLIHC board member and Vice President and Market Leader at Enterprise Community Partners, will speak on a webinar titled, “Thinking Globally, Planning Locally: Creating Sustainable Communities in the National Capital Region.” Joining him on the webinar will be Alicia Lewis, Housing Planner, Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments; Rob Richardson, Development Manager, National Housing Trust; and Abby Thorne-Lyman, Project Director, Reconnecting America.
