The League of Women Voters of Naperville (LWVN) is holding a virtual forum at 7 p.m. on November 9 via Zoom to cover the topic of affordable housing. It’s titled, “Affordable, Accessible, and Supportive Housing: Why Our Community Needs These Options.”

Benefits and Concerns Addressed

Presenters will explain the benefits of mixed residential options in the community, along with addressing concerns from the public. Speaking during the virtual forum will be Lindsey Haines, senior vice president of real estate development at Full Circle Communities, and Clara and Roger Hughes of DuPage United.

The three will discuss the different types of housing and its importance. They’ll also review what this type of housing generally looks like, as well as typical residents.
