Falmouth Chamber Sponsors Affordable Housing Series

Filed Under: More News

The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod and Falmouth Community Television, has produced a three-part series aimed at educating the community about the issue of affordable housing.

Episode 1 welcomes stakeholders within the Falmouth Community who will discuss the increased challenges for businesses, healthcare, schools, public safety and the scientific community in attracting and keeping employees due to the high cost of living.

Episode 2 gathers housing leaders from Falmouth and across the Cape to discuss the roadblocks in creating more affordable housing, including zoning and public perception, and focuses on educating the citizenry on the different types of housing and why a balance of all is needed to maintain a community that families from all incomes can afford to live in.

Episode 3 examines possible solutions from local affordable housing developers, architects, Select Board member Onjale Scott Price and the Falmouth EDIC, including discussion of what other communities have done to address this issue.
