NewCo: Building A Welcoming City

Building A Welcoming City: Changing the Affordability Narrative

Austin is a top-tier city in almost every measure of quality of life. On the top-ten list for live music, food, entertainment, green-living, etc. But as the city continues to grow it must address issues of cultural inclusion, diversity, affordability and other social dynamics that make the local landscape accessible and welcoming to all, not just the popular majority. The Austin Shapers will engage attendees in a conversation focused on our "Welcoming City" project. We'll expose attendees to our online dashboard assessing Austin's current affordability efforts and provide opportunity for open dialogue on the projects evolution.
