Get an overview of the steps involved in building future homes at Alameda Point and other locations throughout Alameda.
Event will bring together urban planning experts and community leaders to address these questions and more:
- How does building more homes benefit the community?
- What are the goals in offering land for development of future homes?
- Why were these sites at Alameda Point selected?
- How will City staff include the community in the development process?
- What are plans for affordable housing and supportive housing?
The panel will be held at Alameda’s Independence Plaza, an excellent example of mixed housing, including affordable and market rate units. Following the panel and luncheon, participants will board a bus and visit several locations of affordable housing in Alameda including the recently opened Jack Capon Villas and Park Alameda as well as sites of future housing development sites at Alameda Point and Alameda.
