PRESENTED BY ULI MINNESOTA / REGIONAL COUNCIL OF MAYORS

EVENT SPONSOR: METROPOLITAN COUNCIL

Immigrant populations have emerged as important contributors to housing demand at the same time as our region is experiencing a growing disconnect between where businesses are expanding and where the workers they employ can afford to live. What do these trends mean for the MSP region? How are cities and business responding to housing challenges?

JOIN US!

For a keynote address from Dr. Lisa Sturtevant, Senior Visiting Fellow at the Urban Land Institute’s Terwilliger Center for Housing. Lisa will discuss the Center’s recent report, Home in America: Immigrants and Housing Demand, which featured the MSP region as one of its five study areas from across the country.

FOLLOWED BY

A panel of regional business leaders will discuss the jobs and housing mismatch and what can be done to overcome it.
