Panel Discussion - “Warren’s Affordable Housing Dilemma”

This is a friendly and informational discussion about balancing the economic and cultural assets of Warren’s historic district with the vital need for affordable housing in the community. 


Panelists will include Herb Durfee, Planner for the Town of Warren; Elizabeth Totten from the RI Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission; and Fred Massie, Chairman of the Warren Planning Board. The panel members will be asked to respond to three talking points that focus on the challenges of building affordable housing within a small historic community.  There will be time for questions from the audience after the discussion.  WPS board member Joan Coltrain will serve as moderator. 


Topics of interest include how the state’s affordable housing legislation influences new development planning, Warren’s comprehensive plan and housing survey, and concerns about density and preserving historic architectural character and scale.
