RAZE THE HOUSE: REDEFINING HOUSING IN A TIME OF SCARCE RESOURCES
With redevelopment agencies under threat, diminished investment in low income housing tax credits and the exhaustion of Proposition 1C funds, affordable housing is at a crossroads. If you are concerned about the future of affordable homes, do NOT miss this summit gathering city planners, key housing leaders, policy makers and community advocates to discuss solutions to our short and long term housing challenges. Looking back to look forward, we'll be joined by a panel of former Directors of California's Housing & Community Development Department, including the Director during Governor Brown's first term in the mid-1970's.
Featured Keynote Speaker, Peter Calthorpe! Named one of 25 "innovators on the cutting edge" by Newsweek Magazine for his work redefining the models of urban and suburban growth in America. Also, Founder of the Congress for New Urbanism, and recently led a groundbreaking state-wide urban design effort, Vision California, to inform the implementation of the state's Climate Change legislation
We will also honor a very special Silicon Valley Housing Hero, Leslye Corsiglia, San Jose's Director of Housing.
