April 14th: Affordable Housing
In partnership with the Red Lodge Area Community Foundation and their Workforce Housing Initiative, this year's Forum will focus on the issues and opportunities surrounding affordable housing along the Beartooth Front. Speakers will provide insight to models that have been successful and unsuccessful in similar communities, review the efforts of the Community Foundation and past efforts within the community, and attendees will provide feedback, insight, and ideas during breakout sessions.
Please join us on April 14th at the Old Roosevelt Gymnasium at 9. Light breakfast provided at 8:30 and lunch will be provided. Event is free for everyone to attend.
