Housing Regulation in the Greater Seacoast: Causes and Consequences

February 08, 2022 | 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Venue : Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel (and virtual)

Join a lively, candid discussion about the region’s housing market and the opportunities for regulatory solutions to our housing supply and affordability crisis, hosted by the Center for Ethics in Society at Saint Anselm College and  Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy.

Jason Sorens, Director of the Center for Ethics, will summarize the findings of his statewide residential land use regulation study before drilling down on specific Seacoast communities to show how housing costs have changed, and what the consequences have been for workers and families in the region. What can the region’s municipalities do to free up home building from regulatory red tape?

Following Sorens’ presentation, Andrew Cline, President of the Bartlett Center, will moderate a panel discussion with local experts. Panelists include Sarah Wrightsman (Coordinator of Community Engagement at New Hampshire Housing and former Executive Director of the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast) and Darren Winham (Town of Exeter, Economic Development Director).
