PRICED OUT? Affordable Housing: A Status Report @ Kansas City Public Library
Nov 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
PRICED OUT? Affordable Housing: A Status Report @ Kansas City Public Library | Kansas City | Missouri | United States
This is “The Land of Opportunity.”  But many people feel “priced out” of the American Dream.

Nearly two years after the Library and KCPT-Kansas City PBS launched an examination of affordable housing in the city, we take a deeper look at what has changed? For the better? For worse?Mayor Quinton Lucas, who campaigned on the issue, joins a panel discussion and assessment of where the city now stands – as well as where it might be headed. Included is a look at opportunity zones and the tax breaks they extend to developers to encourage investment in low-income, economically distressed neighborhoods. Are they helping or hurting? Do they hasten gentrification? Also, what’s the expected impact of reassessment in Jackson County, particularly on renters?

Nick Haines moderates the discussion with elected leaders, landlords, tenants and housing advocates.

Wine & cheese reception: 6 p.m. | Program: 6:30 p.m.
