You can help plan for the future of housing in the region by attending an open house and providing input on housing challenges and its impact on the community.

The open house is part of the Regional Housing Needs Study and will be held Aug. 27, 4-7 p.m. at East Stonewall AME Zion Church, 1929 Griers Grove Road.

The Regional Housing Needs Study is an initiative of the Connect Our Future project and provides an opportunity for the community to create a Comprehensive Regional Housing Strategy to meet current and future needs of the region as it grows.

The study encompasses the Greater Charlotte 14-county region.

The Connect our Future project will help address issues such as how to supply adequate and appropriate housing for the future workforce and ensure that it is located near jobs, schools and transportation. Other issues include identifying and removing barriers to fair housing for under-represented groups.

The drop-in open house will have board exhibits and stations where staff will address questions and solicit input.

Residents can also learn more about the preliminary findings on housing needs and provide input on their housing challenges and preferences.

The feedback will be incorporated into the final findings of the study and the housing strategy for the region. To learn more about this initiative, visit www.ConnectOurFuture.org.
