What’s Palo Alto Doing to Address the Housing Crisis?

May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In February 2018, Palo Alto’s city council adopted a Housing Work Plan to address the housing affordability crisis. Since then, the council has adopted a set of zoning changes to allow more housing in mixed-use commercial districts and to incentivize the creation of additional in-law units. As part of Affordable Housing Week, join us to learn more about these efforts and the changes expected later this year to generate critical “missing middle” homes.
