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 misbeliefs.
* 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.
When: *Saturday, May 26th*
Location: *Corde Terra Village *(shown above)

*Cost:* **$10* (Breakfast and Lunch Provided)

Housing Week. Please register as soon as possible!
*Limited Space is available. *Fee waiver available upon request.
