The City's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission is hosting its quarterly Building An Equitable Golden Valley forum Thu, Aug 18, 5:30 pm at PRISM (1220 Zane Ave N) on affordable housing. Community members of all ages are invited to attend.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development defines affordable housing as “housing on which the occupant is paying no more than 30 percent of gross income for housing costs, including utilities.”
Housing choices, such as location, single family or multifamily, and rent or own, can be determined by economic situation, stage in life, and many other factors. The City of Golden Valley is hoping to get to a point where anyone, regardless of income level or other factors, can find an affordable home in Golden Valley.
Community Forum On Housing
A community forum set for Thu, Aug 18, 5:30 pm at PRISM (1220 Zane Ave N) will feature information about the history of housing in Golden Valley, the City’s goals to provide more affordable, inclusive housing, and the tools it will use to meet those goals.
Sponsored by the City's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission, the forum will also include break-out sessions to discuss the barriers that exist to building additional affordable, inclusive housing in Golden Valley. The forum is free and open to all, will have activities for children and families, and will serve a light dinner at 5:30 pm. Community members can attend in-person or online.
