As the region continues to grow, the question of where and how to house our increasing population is at the forefront of many conversations. Is moving to job opportunities more important than being able to call the same neighborhood home? Should new affordable housing be built in cities to help stave off displacement or should it be built in suburban jurisdictions with access to successful schools? Hear from housing experts as they discuss these questions and more.
