New Paths to Housing and Transportation Affordability

Watch the video of this event here.

Panel and discussion 3:00-4:30 pm, followed by a networking reception.

The Community Development Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco invites you to a policy briefing and engaging discussion on promoting housing and transportation affordability. Panelists will illustrate challenges in developing affordable transit-oriented housing developments including requirements for excessive parking, community opposition and financing hurdles.  They will then explore 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

Please join fellow developers, lenders, investors, advocates, and community stakeholders to discuss the barriers that are being broken by programs like TransForm's GreenTRIP certification (see www.greentrip.org), as well as innovative new programs and tools that can lower the hurdles for affordable transit oriented housing development.
