Affordability is focus of Thursday forum in Summit

SUMMIT COUNTY The housing market is shifting toward luxury, bringing new challenges for locals to find reasonably-priced rentals and homes to buy. Will the situation just get worse? What is being done? Those questions will be asked and discussed Thursday, when Our Future Summit hosts a panel discussion to address these concerns and consider what constitutes affordable or attainable housing on from 7-9 p.m. at the Community & Senior Center near Frisco.Developing attainable housing in Summit County is an ever-growing challenge says Jennifer Kermode, executive director of the Summit Combined Housing Authority and panel moderator. Weve got to have cooperative efforts from all the players, and a strong commitment to keep a middle-class community here. Then we can find solutions to help solve our dilemma. Bringing the public into the discussion is key to our efforts.Joining Kermode on the panel will be: City of Aspen mayor Mick Ireland, Wellington neighborhood developer David ONeil, and Summit County planner John Roberts.The forum is free and open to the public. Doors at the Community Center will open at 6:30 p.m., when light snacks and soft drinks will be available.Our Future Summit is a quality of life institution dedicated to a better Summit County by providing opportunities each month for informed discussion on topics of interest to the community.
