An adequate supply of housing, at a range of densities, typologies, and price points, is a required element of a well functioning and vital community.   But the development and redevelopment of housing is proving to be more challenging than ever for planners, housing professionals,  and elected and appointed municipal leaders.  From density resistant neighbors and soaring construction costs to policy choices that stymie new housing development, the challenge of planning for and executing viable alternatives to the current system can seem overwhelming.  MAP's 2022 Housing Summit provides inspiration, solutions, and data about the hard job ahead, along with a regulatory roadmap, talking points, and opportunities to share your successes and challenges with your peers.
