This session offered attendees an opportunity to explore current and future thinking about housing and transit-oriented developments across the region. This was the second in a 3-part series focused on better informing our business community and regional leaders about opportunities and challenges around housing production across our region. We hope this series inspires business leaders to get involved in our economic development work and be a part of our South Shore 2030 plan. The series is brought to you by the South Shore Chamber’s Housing Committee, a working committee of committed professionals from various backgrounds committed to housing as an economic development strategy for the region. Our Housing Initiative work is made possible through generous funding from Rockland Trust Bank, Massachusetts Housing Partnership, Cape Cod Lumber, Fireking Baking Company & Sullivan Tire.
Forum Recap: Callie Clark, Director of Policy at the Center for Housing Data at Mass Housing Partnership (MHP) and Dr. Tracy Corley, TOD Fellow at MassInc provided expertise and insight into current transit-oriented development thinking, placemaking strategies and offered an in depth analysis of what development looks like at a variety the South Shore's transit stops. As we work towards a goal of 44,000 new homes added to the South Shore by 2030, we continue to remain optimistic about the role that TODs will play in getting us to this number, offering more diverse housing options and focusing on connecting people and places.
This work would not be possible without our Funders – thank you to Rockland Trust Bank, Massachusetts Housing Partnership, Cape Cod Lumber, Fireking Baking Company & Sullivan Tire for your continued support of our Housing Initiative. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you further about our 2030 work and ways to get involved and engaged. Please contact Courtney Bjorgaard at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
