How does housing policy and regulation evolve in a city? This story has it all: A small town growing into a city unexpectedly recognizes a growing need in its changing population. A housing needs assessment identifying the specific needs of the community... A Municipal Development Plan review just getting underway... A Land Use Bylaw in need of updating... Community conversations to better understand what physical changes citizens will (and won’t) support…

Then, suddenly, a global pandemic hits just as a series of in-person open houses are set to get underway! Like many cities, Lethbridge is in need of affordable housing and more actions to address questions like: Where should we put it and what should it look like? Is it the right supply? Are our own city policies and regulations creating barriers to constructing appropriate housing? Are we making evidence-based development decisions? How can we move from knowing the need to having supportive policy to implementation? We’ll share how housing has been evolving in Lethbridge, describe lessons learned on how to translate need to action and leave participants thinking about how their own MDPs and LUBs could be updated to better facilitate housing development.
