Community Forum To Take On Housing Challenges!

by Osman Parvez



On Thursday January 22nd, the City of Boulder announced that it will be hosting a community forum called Why Housing Matters! to discuss opportunities and ways to address Boulder's housing challenges. This public forum will give residents a chance to engage in constructive conversations regarding how to best achieve our city's housing goals, while simultaneously upholding our community values.

Participants in the forum will be asked to choose two Housing Boulder goals to discuss in greater detail with their fellow community members. Additionally, members of the five Housing Boulder working groups will be at the forum to listen to the public and their diverse opinions and ideas.

The forum's keynote speaker is award-winning architect Michael Pyatok. He is the principal of Oakland-based architecture firm PYATOK and a professor at the University of Washington. Pyatok is a nationally recognized leader in neighborhood design and affordable housing. Pyatok will speak from 7:30 to 8 p.m. about the ideas generated from small group discussions, as well as provide knowledge of the best and most effective practices from other locations around the country.

Boulder community members are also invited to go to “Pastries with Pyatok” from 8:30 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 27, in the Alfalfa's Market Community Room, located at 1651 Broadway. This will be a great opportunity to chat with Michael Pyatok in an informal setting about his experience and about the issues that Boulder is seeking to address.


The forum will take place on Monday, Jan 26th @ the eTown Hall, 1535 Spruce St.
from 6 to 8 p.m. 


Join the Why Housing Matters! forum on Jan. 26; review the information at www.HousingBoulder.net; sign up for the Housing Boulder email list; and share your ideas using the Inspire Boulder digital town hall.
