There is plenty of surface/parking garages and street parking around Prospect and East 14th St. The presentations will focus on the foreclosure crisis, the state of rental housing in the suburbs, and potential threats to affordable housing in the suburbs. Confirmed guests include:

  • Sally Martin--Housing Manager of South Euclid and co-chair of the First Suburbs Housing Committee,
