Report: Limited housing, transportation options could slow county growth

Neighborhoods NOW logo

HAND this week released a 15-page report summarizing key takeaways from its 2016 Neighborhoods NOW Conference.

Distributed to conference registrants and sponsors, the report was made possible by a grant from Old National Bank Foundation.

Fast-growing Hamilton County is expected to add 50,000 jobs by 2025, but employers here already are finding it difficult to fill some positions because potential job candidates can’t afford to live here or maintain reliable transportation.

Attendees discussed the challenges and brainstormed possible solutions during the Nov. 10 conference; their ideas are included in the report.
