Featured speakers include:
Ryan Page, San Juan County affordable housing coordinator;
Steve Ulvi, Yes for Homes Coalition; and

Topics to be presented include funding options that were considered, a description of the proposal and discussion of the benefits and concerns with enacting the REET. The public is encouraged to attend and submit questions to the speakers.
