Building More Community Housing AND Protecting More Open Space

Date: Monday, May 13th
Time: 7pm-8pm

Please join a community forum – “Housing and Land Conservation – It Doesn’t Have to Be Either/Or” – a panel discussion organized by the Wellesley Conservation Land Trust and presented in partnership with the Wellesley Free Library, Building a Better Wellesley, and Sustainable Wellesley.

The objective of the panel is to provide a forum for ideas as to how pro-active collaboration between community housing proponents and land conservation advocates can lead to successful outcomes.  To start the panel, three individuals – one each from a land trust, a housing interest group, and a planning perspective – will describe their experiences along the way to a successful collaborative project.    Each will describe their specific project and lessons learned.

After the presentation of the examples, we will have three local responders – one each from our housing, land trust, and planning communities – respond to these examples. What lessons can be applied to pro-active planning for Wellesley’s community housing and land conservation needs.

Questions from the audience are welcomed.
