Brought to you by Catalyze SV:
Local government officials from across the U.S. discuss how they’re changing zoning to make it easier to build homes like duplexes.
About this Event: Mon, March 22, 2021 | 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM PDT
In recent years, cities across the country have begun passing reforms to zoning, changing policies that have been in place for decades.
San Jose, where 94% of residential land is zoned exclusively for single-family homes, is now considering a similar change through a concept called Opportunity Housing. The results could have a big impact – the New York Times cites research that if 10% of San Jose’s 5,000 square foot lots added a second unit, our community would have 15,000 new places for people to live.
Catalyze SV & Excite Credit Union invite you to join us for a dynamic panel bringing together government officials from across the U.S. who have evaluated & passed similar zoning changes.
