Registration Open For Part 2 Of Chattanooga’s Housing Connections Conference

Friday, November 2, 2018

Last month the City of Chattanooga held part one of its inaugural Housing Connections Conference. Community leaders and subject-matter experts will meet again Saturday, Nov. 10, to continue the conversation of challenges facing housing in Chattanooga.


Providing, creating and building affordable and equitable housing options for Chattanoogans is a priority among my administration and I'm thrilled when I see our community members feel as impassioned about it as I do,” said Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke.


Part one of the conference saw over 100 participants and engaged citizens learning about the current housing challenges in Chattanooga as well as potential legislative actions that could expand affordable housing options, better serve our community’s homeless population, and stabilize Chattanooga’s neighborhoods.


Part Two of the City of Chattanooga’s Housing Connections Conference will focus on:

  • Key housing challenges facing many Chattanoogans and the various social, environmental and economic conditions that can contribute to them.

  • Existing building and zoning codes, financial incentives, social programs and more resources available to address housing challenges.

  • Existing and future government policies and their effects on housing.

  • Creating a respectful and ongoing positive dialog between housing advocates, neighborhoods, housing providers, and government leaders.

  • How you can actively engage in moving Chattanooga’s housing strategy forward.


The conference will be Nov. 10, at the Family Justice Center, 5705 Uptain Road, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.


Speakers and panels will be announced soon. Registration is free but required. Seating limited to 100 participants.

Roy Exum: We're Torturing Millions

I’ll admit it – I would rather hurt than take an opioid pain pill. Hydrocodone and its cousins scare the willies out of me because once when I was ‘drug sick,’ it was the worst sickness I have ever known. For somebody who always has somewhere that it hurts, I know that opioids are wonderful when used properly but because they are increasingly abused by society, there are now over ... (click for more)
