New Paths to Housing and Transportation Affordability in Transit Served Communities
December 12, 2012
3:00-4:30pm, 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.
