Recap: Housing, Equity, and Community Series Webinar

This week Circulate’s Executive Director & General Counsel, Colin Parent joined Assemblymember Laura Friedman, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs Urban Planning Professor Adam Millard-Ball, and Innovative Housing Opportunities President & CEO Rochelle Mills to discuss state-wide parking reform as part of the Housing Equity and Community Series. Specifically SB 2097 (Friedman) will allow transit-oriented development to opt-out of parking minimums, encouraging more affordable housing to be built and reducing vehicle miles traveled.

A recording of the webinar is available here.

Thanks for joining our Spring Book Talk with Dr. Jenny Schuetz

On Tuesday, Circulate joined the San Diego Regional Policy & Innovation to host a book talk the Dr. Jenny Schuetz, the author of Fixer-Upper: How to Repair America’s Broken Housing Systems.

Dr. Schuetz, a senior fellow at Brookings Metro, outlined the structural problems within US housing systems that contribute to widely disparate outcomes. As Dr. Schuetz explained, unequal housing systems didn’t just emerge from natural economic and social forces. But, it was public policies enacted by federal, state, and local governments that created the bad housing outcomes we are now experiencing.

Is there a way out of our housing crisis? Yes! Dr. Schuetz outlined practical policy changes than can make stable, decent-quality housing more available and affordable for all Americans in all communities. Her housing policy reforms are essential to get folks in homes, and are vital to meet climate action goals.

Dr. Shuetz called us to action to join groups, like Circulate, advocating for important land use reform. Your support keeps land use reform front and center at public hearings, in the halls of power, and in the press. Together, with you members like you, we are working towards a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous San Diego. Invest in this future and become a member today.
