About This Presentation:

U.S. suburban housing markets are well positioned to remain preferred places to live and work over the coming decades, even as many urban cores and downtown neighborhoods continue to attract new residents and businesses. A presentation from RCLCO will include an overview of the outcomes from the Urban Land Institutes’ Terwilliger Center report titled “Housing in the Evolving American Suburb,” a report creating a new analytic framework for classifying suburbs developed by RCLCO. The following panel will discuss the implications of this new suburban classification model for our region’s communities.
