HOUSING ACCESS AND AFFORDABILITY IN ANN ARBOR AND WASHTENAW COUNTY
There is a millage to increase access to housing for our most in need community members on the ballot November 3rd in Ann Arbor. Why is this millage so important? Why does it affect everyone in Ann Arbor? Why do housing access issues affect all of Washtenaw County? The WCDP Housing Access Forum will have a panel of experts to answer these questions and discuss these important issues.
Christopher Taylor, Mayor of Ann Arbor
Amanda Carlisle – Washtenaw Housing Alliance
Teresa Gillotti, Office of Community and Economic Development
Honorable J. Cedric Simpson, Judge 14A-1 District Court
Desirae Simmons – Ypsilanti Master Plan: Housing Affordability & Access Subcommittee
