The Low-Hanging Fruit is Housing Construction
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Registration Required. Webinar link will be emailed the day before to registered attendees.
In normal times, our overcrowded housing is often dismissed in Hawaii as “cultural.” Today, it is a public health crisis. The pandemic has highlighted just how overcrowded our existing housing is. Our enormous latent housing shortage has not gone away during the pandemic. Now is a golden opportunity to close the gap for our young people and future generations by accelerating the building of reasonably priced housing for all. The lowest-hanging fruit for pulling Hawaii out of our economic downturn is housing construction. Christine will explore the chronic problem we have in Hawaii and outline a realistic path forward to solve this longtime problem.
