Building Inclusion into the Millennial City

Building Inclusion into the Millennial City

by Rolf Pendall

Director, Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center, Urban Institute

Tuesday, March 8, 4:30 p.m.
Gov. James J. Florio Special Events Forum,
Civic Square Building
33 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ

The U.S. city was built for the baby boom. Its bones were formed when the U.S. was in its final decades of legal apartheid and fleshed out over four decades of rising inequality. The baby boom is still here and will continue to shape cities, suburbs, and rural areas. But we now need to accommodate a new generation— the millennials—whose coming of age will require millions of new rental housing units. Where will this housing be built? How will established housing and communities adapt to meet their needs while also allowing Baby Boomers to live comfortably well into old age? How do the answers to these questions differ depending on where we look? In this lecture we will look at recent trends, chart out national future prospects, suggest alternative scenarios for local areas with a special focus on the Boston to Washington corridor, and identify policies,  practices, and incentives that could make millennial cities more inclusive in 50 years than baby boomer cities are today.

Rolf Pendall is Director of the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute.  In this role, he leads a team of over 40 experts on a broad array of housing, community development, and economic development topics, consistent with Urban Institute’s nonpartisan, evidence-based approach to economic and social policy. Pendall’s research expertise includes metropolitan growth trends; land-use planning and regulation; demographic change; federal, state, and local  affordable housing policy and programs; and racial residential segregation and the concentration of poverty. 

1.5 AICP certification maintenance credits.

Lecture and reception free and open to the public. RSVP requested by visiting http://bit.ly/catlin-2016
