Affordable Housing Week Symposium


If we want housing in our community to be more affordable, we need to reduce barriers and adopt policies to increase the supply and diversity of housing being built. More and more cities are reconsidering their land use and development policies with an eye on meeting the demands of today's market. We explored how even modest reforms to policies and zoning—together with regional collaboration—open up new housing choices that are desirable and attainable for people and families across Greater Des Moines. This event was presented by AARP Iowa.
