From HAC information:
At our January meeting, we hosted a panel of experts who gave us a little teaser about topics that the Coalition should focus on this year. Randy Tsuda outlined what one local government, Mountain View, is doing to make up for the loss of redevelopment through their commercial linkage fee and rental impact fee. Jeff Oberdorfer of First Community Housing gave us a sense for how the affordable housing industry is reacting to this new funding world and Michael Lane from the NonProfit Housing Association talked about what is going on at the State level. At the time, we promised to dive deeper into each of these topics and at our March 8th meeting, we will do just that.
Libby Seifel, of Seifel Consulting, will share her insight on the future of housing and community development in California since the elimination of Redevelopment and on new funding strategies being explored for affordable housing. Libby is one of the go-to experts on housing and redevelopment. Her firm has consulted on a number of significant projects including Hunter's Point Shipyard, Mission Bay Redevelopment, and the Transbay Transit Center District Neighborhood, which collectively will include over 5,000 affordable housing units.
The meeting will take place on Friday, March 8th, 11am at the Santa Clara Central Park Library, (2635 Homestead Road, Santa Clara).
