Housing that Cambridge can Afford

At the Epicenter of Development & Demand

While Cambridge’s real estate market booms and population is expected to grow in the coming decade, low and middle-income families in our city still struggle with unaffordable and rising housing costs. How can we ensure that new development in Cambridge serves the housing needs of all families including those with lower incomes? How does this relate to other important development issues - density, walking/biking/public transit, parking, and creating exciting, walkable neighborhoods? A Better Cambridge brings together experts to discuss what Cambridge can do to build a more diverse and affordable city for all families.

Panelists include:

Aaron Gornstein
President/CEO, Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH)
Edward Marchant
Affordable Housing Development Consultant and
Adjunct Lecturer of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School of Government

Andre Leroux
Executive Director, Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance
