Executives from Accela and Louisville, KY to Host Discussion on Affordable Housing Solutions at the 2022 National League of Cities City Summit

Accela Managing Director Darryl Booth and Develop Louisville Director Marilyn Harris will discuss how cities are tapping digital building software solutions to reach affordable housing goals

San Ramon, Calif. — On Thursday, November 17, Darryl Booth, managing director of the Center of Experts and Government Affairs for govtech leader Accela and Develop Louisville Director Marilyn Harris, will co-host a session titled, “Five Practical Actions Designed to Increase Housing Inventory” at the 2022 National League of Cities City Summit.

Forty-nine percent of Americans say affordable housing is a major problem in their local community, posing as a top priority for cities and towns across the country. However, local jurisdictions are often stymied by outmoded building processes that unnecessarily add dollars and delays to these important projects.

In this session sponsored by Accela, participants will explore how cities adopted technology changes to reach their affordable housing goals, while positively impacting the delivery of other city services. Examples include registering vacant and abandoned properties; and using state-of-the-art data monitoring tools, such as dashboards, to keep the city and its partners focused on key priorities.

Accela’s building solutions modernize traditional government permitting processes. They allow municipalities to easily launch virtual inspections and streamline permitting in order to achieve communities’ strategic goals to protect and expand affordable housing. In Tacoma, Accela’s solutions saved 30 hours per month on over-the-counter permits and 44 hours per month by offering ePermits.
