With the discussion about affordable housing in Edwardsville growing, the city’s Human Relations Committee will be discussing the topic with local advocates today.

At the meeting, the Edwardsville Community Housing Alliance will be presenting their thoughts to the committee with members, such as John Harvey and Mary Grose, planning to attend.
