Housing Development 101

One thing is clear: we need more housing, of all types, throughout the Piedmont Triad. So why can’t we just snap our fingers and make it happen? Well, to solve a problem you first have to at least begin to understand it, so in this session we’ll explore what it take to build housing these days? Our speakers will lead you through the myriad challenges of developing housing in 2023, including:

  • Identifying viable land and why developers spend tens of thousands of dollars before they even purchase the land
  • Securing financing
  • Navigating the maze of ever-changing regulations
  • Addressing supply chain issues
  • Overcoming labor shortages
  • And the many other challenges that developers of all types of housing face today

Let’s Talk Solutions

In our earlier sessions, we looked at the current state of housing in the Triad, and we discussed some of the challenges in housing development. Now let’s talk about some possible solutions. Sarah Odio, with the Development Finance Initiative at the UNC School of Government, will explore the tools that cities and towns have at their disposal to promote the development of attainable housing in their communities and help attendees begin to think about some of the tools they might have at their disposal to do the same with theirs.
