Description

Please join the Brown University Real Estate Group (BREG) San Francisco, along with SPUR and the Brown Club of San Francisco, for an afternoon panel discussing the policy initiatives by Governor Gavin Newsom’s new administration and the State Legislature on housing, development and transportation.

The panel will be held on April 25 at SPUR San Francisco (654 Mission Street), a renowned public policy institute that focuses on San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose. The panelists are:

  • Adhi Nagraj ‘98, Senior Vice President of McCormack Baron Salazar, formerly San Francisco Director of SPUR
  • Liam Dillon, Los Angeles Times real estate columnist based in Sacramento
  • David Garcia, Policy Director, Terner Center at UC Berkeley
  • Rebecca Foster ‘00, Executive Director, San Francisco Housing Accelerator Fund
  • Caitlyn Fox ‘07, Director, Justice & Opportunity Initiative, CZI
  • Matt Turner ’92 A.M. & ’95 Ph.D, Economics Professor, Brown University

The panel will be an interactive discussion moderated by Adhi Nagraj, to discuss housing development initiatives in California, the feasibility of Governor Newsom’s plan to build 3.5 million units state-wide by 2025, and the benefits and drawbacks of such a plan. The speakers will share their expertise and knowledge on housing issues as well as their personal agendas to address the housing crisis at a state, regional, and local level.

We’ve invited key policy experts and local stakeholders including several Brown alumni to drive the discussion. Professor Matt Turner, an internationally known expert in urban and transportation policy, will bring a national perspective to the conversation and case studies of initiatives in other cities.
