A forum on Charlotte’s affordable housing shortage will be held Aug. 29 at Reeder Memorial Baptist Church.
The town hall meeting, sponsored by Reeder Memorial’s Social Justice Committee, is 6-8 p.m. at the church, located at 3725 Beatties Ford Road.
“We wanted to bring the City of Charlotte, the Housing Authority, a developer and a grass roots organization together to discuss solutions and equity regarding affordable housing in Charlotte,” said Colette Forrest, chair of the church’s Social Justice Committee.
Charlotte needs an estimated 30,000 affordable housing units to keep pace with demand, according to city officials.
The forum is free and open to the public.
