Feb. 25, 2012

“Working and Living in Ozaukee County – Housing Issues” is the topic of a luncheon meeting/panel discussion set for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, March 2, in the Lecture Hall at Milwaukee Area Technical College’s Mequon Campus, 5555 W. Highland Road. The discussion will address whether Ozaukee County offers affordable housing for workers who earn moderate-income wages in area jobs.

A panel of experts will provide an update of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) Regional Housing Plan and discuss obstacles to home ownership, new housing development, housing discrimination and fair housing practices, job/housing balance, subsidized and tax-credit housing, accessible housing and employment-housing-transit connections.

Panelists include Nancy Anderson, chief assistance planner, SEWRPC; Troy Bretl, Ozaukee Board of Realtors; Ben McKay, principal planner, SEWRPC; and Kori Schneider Peragine, program manager, Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council. Andrew Struck, director of the Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department, will serve as moderator.
