New Paths to Housing and Transportation Affordability
The Community Development Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco hosted a policy briefing and engaging discussion on promoting housing and transportation affordability. Panelists illustrated challenges in developing affordable transit-oriented housing developments including requirements for excessive parking, community opposition and financing hurdles. They then explored solutions that are reducing costs for developers and residents alike, such as providing free transit passes and carsharing to dramatically reduce demands for excess parking, as well as new financing mechanisms being pioneered in the Bay Area.
Panelists: Stuart Cohen, Executive Director, TransForm
Lindy Hahn, Vice President, Morgan Stanley
Lisa Motoyama, Director of Housing Development, Resources for Community Development
