The affordable/attainable housing crisis has reached a critical stage, not only in California, but also across the country. Big, bold, and implementable ideas must be coordinated across the public and private sectors. Our panelists will discuss integrated approaches toward creating vibrant, mixed-use, transit-oriented, and walkable developments that represent Urban Nodes in Suburbia (UNiS). Learn how to use respectful consensus-building approaches to overcome the hurdles associated with large-scale mixed-use developments that emphasize the principals of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG). Our expert panelists will discuss innovative approaches that adhere to the principles of social, environmental, and economic responsibility and sustainability, which include the following: the creation of public/private partnerships focused on early grassroots community outreach; well-calibrated form-based zoning codes; equitable community benefits agreements; the use of visual and analytic technology; and how to bridge funding challenges to complete the capital stack.
