Bellingham and Whatcom County are reaching an unprecedented housing crisis and now is the time to have more important conversations and action about affordability, livability, and homelessness. Housing week partners and sponsors have a shared goal to increase opportunities for people of all income levels to have the opportunity to live in walkable neighborhoods that foster healthy lifestyles.
Housing week provides education and awareness to empower advocates, and engage in dialogue about positive solutions. The week’s activities are free and designed for all stakeholders, including the general public, industry professionals, and civic leaders. With presentations from national experts, deep-dive workshops, and tours, Housing Week will highlight creative housing solutions for everyone.
Events include a Downtown Housing Tour, Learning from The Vienna Model Exhibition, Zurich, and Other Advanced Places, Housing Solutions Bus Tour, The Housing Gap & The Economic Divide, Women’s Build and more.
