The Ashland Housing Commission and Save Our Schools and Playgrounds (SOSP) jointly sponsored a Community Forum on Workforce Housing that was held on May 4, 2006. At this event participants worked to collectively come to an understanding of how the lack of Housing available to Ashland's workforce is impacting our community. To examine this issue six questions were asked of all participants.
|1)||How Big is the Problem?|
|2)||What can the City do?|
|3)||Where can we find the Land?|
|4)||How can Ashland employers help their workers live in Ashland?|
|5)||Where can we find the money?|
|6)||How can we build the political will?|

Additionally all participants were asked to identify what each of us can do to help. From these responses a list of "50 things you can do to help with workforce housing in Ashland" was generated.
