On May 17, Investors Council members and guests convened to discuss how cities are stepping up to support affordable housing development. Nearly 100 attendees learned about regional trends and progress made by the cities of Woodbury, Minnetonka, and Edina.
Cathy Bennett of the Urban Land Institute of Minnesota (ULI MN) and the Regional Council of Mayors kicked off the event with a regional overview (pictured far right). A panel discussion followed with insight from (pictured from left) Julie Wischnack, Community Development Director in Minnetonka; Karl Batalden, Housing and Economic Development Coordinator in Woodbury; and Jim Hovland, Mayor of Edina.
