Madison’s rising property values are a sign of the city’s collective prosperity, but the higher prices for homes and apartments make both unaffordable for many. What are the costs of gentrification and how should the city respond?
The Cap Times will bring together an excellent panel to discuss those questions on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at the High Noon Saloon, led by city government reporter Abigail Becker.
The panel's members are Ananda Mirilli, who is chair of the Forward Community Investments board of directors and also a member of the Madison School Board; Anne Neujahr Morrison, who is a principal at New Year Investments and a shareholder at Urban Land Interests; Belinda Richardson, who is program coordinator at The Road Home Dane County; and Matt Wachter, the recently appointed director of the city’s Planning, Community and Economic Development Department.
This Cap Times Talk is free and will run 7-8 p.m. at the High Noon, 701 E. Washington Ave. Cap Times members will have preferred seating at the front of the room. For more information about membership, visit here.
Hope to see you there!
Editor's note: This story was updated on Jan. 8 to add Mirilli and Richardson as panel members.
