The two shared highlights from 2021 and discussed what the future holds for their respective communities. They also spoke about age-friendly and livable community issues such as safe streets. Participants asked questions about plans for climate action, affordable housing and zoning for manufactured homes within city limits, proportional shares of federal funding and the cities’ plans for providing shelter for the homeless.
