Many young families, seniors, and people of middle, moderate, or fixed incomes are
unable to move to — or stay in — our town. What does this mean for Wellesley’s future? Our expert panelists will provide an overview of the challenges and benefits of creating diverse housing. Bring your questions and comments and join us to discuss how we can develop a broader range of housing choices for the long-term health of our community.
