This month’s topic is Affordable and Workforce Housing in our region. Community Housing of Maine (CHOM) Director Cullen Ryan will deliver the keynote, followed by a panel and audience Q&A. Panelists include Duane Bartlett (MDI and Ellsworth Housing Authority), Rosa Moore (H.O.M.E.), Erica Veazey (Pine Tree Legal), Jack Frost (Bar Harbor Bank and Trust), Marla Obyrne (Island Housing Trust), Michael Wood (Deer Isle Stonington Workforce Housing). The Forum will be moderated by Community Compass board member Charles “Kim” Coit.
“Affordable housing is such an important topic,” Community Compass Executive Director Scott Hamann said, “and these panelists will help us cover a lot of ground. We’ll learn about affordable housing construction, the state’s housing voucher system, renter’s rights, housing loans, and workforce housing.”
