Dialogue: Columbus - Can We Afford to Live Here? Tuesday, October 12 at 12:00pm - Virtual Event - WOSU Public Media - The Ohio State University John Glenn College of Public Affairs

October 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Columbus has been an affordable place to live – for most of us. But more and more people are finding it harder to buy or rent a home within their budgets.

Home sale prices are at record highs and outpacing income gains. Apartment buildings are springing up everywhere, but many have rents too high for low-income residents to afford. And with Central Ohio’s population predicted to grow to 3 million by 2050, business and community leaders and housing advocates wonder where the extra half-million people will live.

This Dialogue discussion will focus on Central Ohio’s rapidly changing housing situation and explore what it will take to ensure everyone can afford to live here.
