The San Francisco Housing Action Coalition (SFHAC) will host a panel discussion with three new City Department leaders: John Rahaim, Director of the Department of City Planning; Fred Blackwell, Executive Director of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency; and Isam Hasenin, Director of the Department of Building Inspection. The panel will be moderated by Larry Rosenthal, Executive Director of the Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy.

On Wednesday, April 2, from 7:30 am – 10:30 am these three new leaders will share their vision for housing in San Francisco. This forum will be held at the Mission Bay Conference Center.

The event follows a highly successful public forum hosted by the SFHAC last March that addressed the critical middle-income housing shortage that featured keynote speaker former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. The SFHAC hosts events throughout the year that concentrate on key issues regarding housing in San Francisco. The SFHAC plays an integral role in fostering discussion surrounding the development of smart growth, transit-oriented development and solutions to the City’s affordable housing crisis.

The SFHAC is a membership-based non-profit working to create a pro-housing culture in San Francisco. Started in 1998 as a small group of activists intent on changing San Francisco’s dialogue around housing, it has grown to a broad-based, 73-member organization that has become a successful advocate for local housing and smart-growth issues. Through its committees, SFHAC focuses on endorsement of residential projects as well as housing policy and legislation. Special emphasis is placed on transit-oriented development, strong neighborhood planning and a moderate policy course that seeks to balance many competing factions.

The SFHAC Housing Forum: A New Generation of Housing Leaders will take place on Wednesday, April 2, 2008, from 7:30 am – 10:30 am at the Mission Bay Conference Center located at 1675 Owens Street. Tickets for the event are free for SFHAC members and $10 per person for the general public.
