Thank you for attending the 2009 SWRPA Housing Summit!

This is an issue that deserves a great of attention.

Evonne Klein, 1st Selectwoman, Darien and Gordon Joseloff, 1st Selectman, Westport spoke about issues both shared and unique facing their towns and what they are doing to support the creation of affordable and workforce housing.
