Subject: Housing Tour Information
I thought you might be interested- If you haven't already heard, we're
doing one of our tours again. This one focuses on affordable housing
and is geographically based in South County. The flier is attached and
information is below. If you know anyone who would be interested,
please feel free to pass this information along.
In celebration of Affordable Housing Week, please join Assemblymember
Simon Salinas on the morning of Saturday, May 14th for a tour of
affordable housing in South Santa Clara County.
The purpose of this tour is to show leaders, community members, public
officials and more, different examples of affordable home communities
and to highlight planning and design elements that may be applicable to
your community. At each stop, you will be greeted by an expert who will
review some of the unique features of each home development. As well,
your registration packet will contain a factsheet on each development
that describes the heights, densities, parking ratios and more.
We have very deliberately selected a diverse set of housing examples to
showcase on the tour. Each community has its own personality-- what
works in Morgan Hill may not be appropriate in Gilroy. It is our hope
that the Tour will be helpful to you in figuring out what elements-
landscaping, setbacks, architecture, roof slopes, density- you like and
dislike and what would be key to building a better community and quality
of life in your community.
We hope you join us for the Tour!
