Join us for this webinar to celebrate October as National Community Planning Month and highlight the important role county planning plays in creating healthy, safe and vibrant counties. The 2018 theme of National Community Planning Month is housing as community infrastructure.
Across the nation, county governments and residents are struggling with housing costs. County governments are most explicitly linked to housing through property assessments and the collection of property taxes, yet, they face a diverse set of challenges stemming from housing affordability issues. Counties are in a unique position to respond to affordable housing challenges because of the role many play in planning and zoning. With a variety of tools at their disposal, county governments are well-positioned to help residents find adequate and affordable housing. Join us for this educational webinar to learn more about these best practice strategies, including county case examples from Buncombe County, N.C. and Grand County, Utah
