The future of housing must change, according to Conrad Egan. With 20 years of service to HUD and ongoing work with housing agencies in Northern Virginia, he points to communities that are embracing greater density to provide more housing at lower costs.
In particular, he urges millennials to take power with local governments and push back against resistance to new approaches and an outdated affinity for the single-family home. Egan cites communities like Minneapolis and his own Northern Virginia region as places that are taking new approaches, so those in the economic middle aren’t squeezed out of the opportunity for home ownership.
