      Despite the cooling of the economy, housing prices continue to climb
      and Silicon Valley continues to lag in building homes that are affordable
      to teachers, health care workers, service sector employees and others who
      make up the fabric of our community.  In fact, in Santa Clara County, 27% of
      households can afford a median priced home while the national average
      hovers at 59%.

      Fortunately, Silicon Valley is home to several model affordable home
      developments.  Please join your fellow neighborhood leaders on a tour
      of affordable housing to learn about various densities, building designs,
      setbacks, landscaping, and parking ratios as well as examples of
      integrating more compact affordable homes into existing neighborhoods.  Learn how
      to play a constructive role in shaping your neighborhoods while meeting
      the need for more affordable homes.
