University Neighborhood Housing Plan
Campus Calendar

Tuesday, December 7, 2010
7:00 pm - 9:00 am
920 Euclid Avenue Erwin First United Methodist Church

Event Description:

This is an open invitation to participate in the first neighborhood housing plan Forum this Saturday December 4th from 2-4 pm or Tuesday December 7th from 7-9pm at the Erwin Methodist Church Community Room on the corner of Euclid and Westcott.

It is very important that you express your opinion regarding housing opportunities during the time you plan to spend living in the university neighborhood. This will affect housing for all future renters (students, families, professionals, etc).

If you or your friends plan to rent in this neighborhood over the next couple of years you need to attend this Forum!

Business owners, landlords, and home owners will be well represented at the Forum. We fear the largest population in the neighborhood (renters, especially student renters) will be under represented in the housing vision plan. As a result, the renter's interests in the neighborhood will be overlooked or ignored all together in the process.

The mission of UNPA and the purpose of this housing plan is to convert rental properties into owner occupied properties, reducing the housing stock for student rentals. While owner occupancy is an important part of maintaining a balanced and stable neighborhood, its important that the interests of the current renter population are acknowledged and preserved in the process. If not, renters will most likely face less choices within walking distance to campus and increased rents if there is an abrupt decrease of rental properties.

It is very important that you participate and voice your opinion regarding housing needs and urban planning of the university neighborhood.

University Neighborhood Housing Plan
Building on the foundation of the city-wide Housing Plan, we will create a neighborhood vision, with goals
and action strategies that focuses on housing and quality of life.
This planning process is being facilitated by the SUNY ESF Center for Community Design Research
and will provide multiple opportunities for participation through a series of meetings, workshops and working
groups. The plan that results will be based on an understanding of our resources, opportunities and
challenges, and reflect our shared values and desires for the future of our neighborhood. It is intended
to guide actions by the multiple stakeholders that that contribute to the neighborhood's quality of life,
including residents, landlords, businesses, non-profit organizations, institutions, and city departments.
