Small Talks is a virtual conversation among community members, policy-makers, planners, developers, and academics about housing issues in Syracuse. It is a community discussion that gives voice to those who are most affected by proposed changes in the city. Hear your neighbors, members of the Syracuse community, planners and others, and talk to them! Everyone has the freedom and opportunity to express their views.

We encourage all to participate in this important discussion. We look forward to hearing from you and learning what you have to say about the future of your neighborhood.

To schedule a recording and interview and to ask questions about the project, please contact Madeleine Hamlin at
