Successful Housing Forum - Sat, Feb 20th

ABAG and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), jointly sponsored "Calling the Bay Area Home: Tackling the Affordable Housing and Displacement Challenge," held on Saturday, February 20, 2016. More than 350 attended this free half-day event and participated in a timely and important dialogue among a diverse array of stakeholders on the role that Bay Area local governments and regional agencies — as well as the state and federal governments — can play in addressing skyrocketing housing costs and the accompanying displacement of long-time residents.

Held at the Oakland Marriott, the forum brought together Bay Area housing and transportation policymakers, city planners, community and business leaders, housing developers and advocates. More details about the event, along with a video record, will be posted shortly on the MTC website http://mtc.ca.gov/whats-happening/news/recap-calling-bay-area-home-tackling-affordable-housing-and-displacement.
