Creating Housing Opportunities for All: Market Failures, Impacts, and Effective Responses

The Community Library

Everyone needs housing, yet not everyone living and working in the Wood River Valley has access to a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. Meanwhile, housing impacts many dimensions of our individual lives – our safety, sense of community, identity, and access to opportunities like schools and jobs. It is also connected to broader social and economic progress. Finally, secure and safe housing improves both short-term and long-term physical and mental health outcomes of individuals and families. In her talk, Dr. Vanessa Fry of Boise State University's Idaho Policy Institute, will discuss partnership and policies that can support housing opportunities for all. She will describe market failures and employee generation, impacts of housing crises on communities, households, and individuals, and the geographic scope and scale of an effective housing response. A former resident of the Wood River Valley, she worked directly on local housing and transportation issues in the region while with Citizens for Smart Growth and Community Transportation Association of Idaho. Vanessa will be joined by City of Ketchum’s Housing Director, Carissa Connelly, who will provide context on efforts underway. This program will be livestreamed and available to watch later. In partnership with the City of Ketchum.
