Strategies to Bring Housing Back within Reach »

2024 Spring Conference, May 9, 2024 2:50 pm

Utah faces a daunting challenge. Housing costs have risen dramatically in recent years, far outpacing wage growth. If current trends continue, up-and-coming Utahns will not have the same opportunities as prior generations to enter homeownership, have adequate space for a family, and build wealth. Causes of increasing costs range from high demand—both from a large generation of Utahns who are now in their 20s and 30s and from in-migration—to escalating land and materials costs, regulatory restrictions, and labor shortages. Please join us for a discussion on what we can do to help bring housing back within reach.

Moderate Income Housing »

2023 Spring Conference, May 10, 2023 2:45 pm

Planning for moderate income housing is a requirement of General Plans in the State of Utah. Several communities are also required to submit a moderate income housing report annually to the state, describing strategies, implementation plans, and reporting progress for moderate income housing in the community. This session will review the requirements for the reporting communities and present tools and resources available for them to complete their annual reports.
