You are invited to a special TALC Regional Meeting:
Housing the Future of the Bay Area
September 20, 2006 – 5:30pm at the Sierra Club in Downtown San Francisco
The Bay Area faces a challenging future: major population growth, an aging
baby boom generation, rising energy costs, an obesity crisis, increased
global economic competition, and new risks due to global warming.
But solutions exist in how and where we house people.
The Transportation and Land Use Coalition (TALC) invites you to attend an
engaging presentation by Don Weden, a retired senior planner with Santa
Clara County. He will discuss the major economic, demographic, development,
and environmental trends and challenges that the Bay Area faces, and why
these trends are closely connected to decisions about how and where we
house people. We will take time to strategize how we can increase the scale
and impact of our efforts in dealing with these challenges, including
finding better ways to communicate about the quality-of-life issues at
stake in a way that really connects with people.
This presentation is the feature of TALC’s Regional Meeting on Wednesday,
September 20, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Sierra Club, 85 Second Street, San
Francisco. The Meeting is free and open to the public for this special
event. Pizza and beverages will be served.
PLEASE RSVP to rsvp@... so that we have enough seating and
order enough food.
