Fwd: Invitation to a Housing Forum
- To downtown residents interested in urban design,
and the new urban planning/SJSU egroup members - I know you'll find this
interesting. Freedman is a dynamic speaker. He designed Mtn. View's Castro
st., turning downtown into a hotspot from a dead zone. He has a lot to say.
See you a week from Sunday.
P.S. I'll be the one passing out the "Worried about Housing? Vote No on
Meausure A!" flier prior to the meeting.
