5th Annual Housing Summit

From San Francisco Housing Action Coalition

During the last economic cycle, San Francisco entitled roughly 40,000 new units of housing.  However, it is not clear in the current economic climate how many of them will actually be built.  What could we, as San Franciscans, do to help deliver this badly needed housing?  The SFHAC will host a public forum, “After the Fall: Stimulating New Housing Production,” to examine this issue.  This moderated panel discussion will feature local experts sharing their insights on how to spur housing development in light of the recent economic downturn.

Speakers include:

Oz Erickson, Chairman, Emerald Fund

John Rahaim, Director, San Francisco Planning Department

Dr. Ted Egan, Chief Economist, San Francisco Controller’s Department

Doug Shoemaker, Director, Mayor’s Office of Housing

Cynthia Parker,President & CEO, Bridge Housing

Moderator: Dan Murphy Principal of UrbanGreen Devco LLC
