Car-Light Housing: More affordability, less traffic

Mar 26

Time: 

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

We need to address the housing affordability crisis, but we don’t want to make it harder to get around town or harm the climate. Join us for this discussion to:

  • Learn about the connections between housing affordability, traffic reduction, and climate change; 
  • Hear what neighboring communities are doing to reduce the need to drive; and 
  • See how you can help make your community more walkable, affordable, and transit-friendly.

Topics/Speakers:

  • Nina Rizzo manages GreenTRIP Certifications at TransForm. The GreenTRIP program supports multi-family residential developments that implement strategies to reduce traffic, parking and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Nevada Merriman of MidPen Housing is designing and developing affordable housing where residents can reduce their reliance on cars
  • Elaine Breeze of SummerHill Apartments works on “smart growth” multi-family rental housing and mixed use developments

Co-sponsors:TransForm, Housing Leadership Council, Home for All, OneSanMateo, Imagine San Mateo
