With the recent elimination of redevelopment agencies, the ability to
create affordable homes to meet the diverse needs of residents is in
severe threat. Meanwhile, new proposals to build affordable homes are
often hindered by neighborhood opposition, due to popular myths and
This event serves to debunk those myths by providing an exclusive
opportunity to get an inside look at the different types of housing
that serve Santa Clara County. Come and learn about the reality of how
affordable home communities actually attract resources, add value, and
create vibrancy for neighborhoods.

This is our first tour of a two part series that will showcase the
modern designs of the various types of affordable homes that meet the
needs of our diverse and county residents. This first tour will
highlight the efforts of the City of San Jose, a leader in the Bay
Area for building exemplary affordable and market rate home
communities. Then join us in the fall to tour the affordable housing
communities of neighboring cities who also strive to create vibrant
and livable options for working families and individuals.
