IURD Speaker Series: Sustainable Growth and Affordable Housing

Moderator: Associate Professor Karen Chapple, Director of the Center for Community Innovation

To comply with SB 375, cities and counties may need to think more strategically about how to site affordable housing, overcoming obstacles of high land prices and NIMBY-ism in transit-rich areas. Complicating the situation further, the timetable for housing planning processes (e.g., Regional Housing Needs Assessments) will be difficult to integrate with the regional transportation planning process. Further, today’s economic downturn and mortgage foreclosure crisis raise serious questions about the resources that will be available for affordable housing in the near future.

Speakers:

* Matt Schwartz, President, California Housing Partnership Corporation
* Linda Wheaton, Assistant Deputy Director, Department of Housing and Community Development
* Michael Woo, Commissioner, Los Angeles Planning Commission
* Moderated by Associate Professor Karen Chapple, Director of the Center for Community Innovation

This is the second session in IURD's new speaker series - “Growing Sustainably in a Low-Carbon World.”
