Housing Summit October 20, 2016 Presentation


On October 20, 2016 the City of Boyne City held a "Housing Summit" and invited anybody that had an interest in the topic to attend.  Approximately 61 people attended with representation from government officials, schools, developers, contractors, realtors, lending institutions, business owners, non-profits and the general public.

The goal was not to resolve the issue of "lack of housing in the Boyne area" in one night but to identify the issues and stumbling blocks, share concerns and suggestions and identify possible solutions.  Discussions were led by Sara Lucus from Networks Northwest.  Her slide presentation is available by clicking on the link below.

Various questions were asked, ideas shared and contacts were made throughout the meeting.  The evening ended on a positive note feeling that we are taking the first step with the community on board acknowledging that the issue needs to be addressed and it is going to require the efforts and collaboration of many entities to come up with possible resolutions.
