May General Membership Meeting: “New Housing and Local Business: The View from Main Street”

Event Details

  • Date/Time: Thursday, May 16th, 2024 from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Join us for our May General Membership Meeting! Our topic will be:

“New Housing and Local Business: The View from Main Street”
We’ll begin with informal networking and discussion at 5:00 PM.
The main program will begin at 6:00 PM.

Study after study has shown that building new housing in downtown areas — particularly in an area experiencing a major housing shortage like Westchester — brings with it positive benefits for property taxes, for economic activities, and for local businesses. But there is also the potential for impacts like traffic or parking. We’ll hear from officers at local chambers of commerce where there’s been a recent increase in housing, particularly those that are consistent with “smart growth” principles, including downtown revitalization, infill or adaptive reuse, transit-oriented development in the like.
