MANCHESTER — The town of Manchester will host a free public forum on housing on Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Kilburn Room at Town Hall, 70 Jeff Williams Way. The event is open to the public and will include a Q&A.

During the two-hour event, officials from state and local government will discuss the statewide housing crisis and work that’s underway to create more housing for low- and moderate-income Vermonters. Topics will include Manchester’s housing market, infrastructure, state laws and local zoning, and possible sites and solutions. Following the presentations, a panel will take questions from the audience.

A detailed agenda will be available in October. All presentations will be posted to the town website following the forum, and GNAT will tape the event for public viewing.
