At the Last Subcommittee Meeting…
You can find the previous meeting minutes here.
The Real Estate & Housing subcommittee had its last meeting on Wednesday, June 16th.
Subcommittee members were presented with the outcomes of the Action Summit including attendee statistics, actions that are on target, what attendees felt was missing, and recommendations/strategies to continue the conversation.
Based on the feedback from the Action Summit, the subcommittee is heading in the right direction and is ready to begin drafting recommendations.
Subcommittee members also reviewed the top three issues that participants believe the Task Force/Health subcommittee should work on. They then discussed legal routes for obtaining vacant lots and strategies to reduce vacant lots (such as requiring developers to build within a certain timeframe).
They also explored further ways to narrow down their strategies and ensure that their recommendations address the root causes of inequity. Members of the public commented on subcommittee ideas and strategies.
