TOPICS

This year at the Innovative Housing Summit we will focus on three topics:

  • Accessory Dwelling Units and how they can play a huge housing role in the aging population and others in our nation. 

  • Building Pocket Neighborhoods will focus on different methods to approach building a pocket neighborhood in your community and lessons learned from previous projects.

After the morning conference concludes, attendees will board buses and travel down to Fayetteville, Georgia and enjoy a tour of the Pinewood Forest micro neighborhood along with meeting the builder and architect.
