'Working and Living in Ozaukee County -- Housing Issues' is Topic of March 2 Friday Forum at MATC Mequon Campus

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.

For more information or reservations, please contact Sandra Webster by March 1 at (262) 238-2205 or websters@matc.edu. A $10 lunch fee is payable at the door.

Friday forums are breakfast or lunch meetings held on the first Friday of selected months between October and April. They are co-sponsored by the Mequon Campus of Milwaukee Area Technical College, the Ozaukee County Board of Supervisors and the University of Wisconsin Extension/Ozaukee. The series advances regional progress by bringing key people together to solve problems, share information and build relationships.
