  • Wednesday Vigil for Jonathan Waters. Waters was riding his bike at the intersection of Shattuck and 55th in Oakland when he was struck and killed by a driver Friday night. Join friends and advocates for this vigil to encourage Oakland to enact a quick-build with bulb-outs, crosswalks, and bollard protected bike lanes, and prioritize street safety improvements everywhere before anyone else is killed.

  • Thursday Home Run for Homes. In 2016, San Diego implemented the Affordable Homes Bonus Program (AHBP), which allows developers to build additional housing if they also dedicate a portion of the new development to be affordable. The program, which builds on California’s existing Density Bonus Law, has enabled a substantial increase in the production of market-rate and deed-restricted affordable homes in San Diego. Join this SPUR talk to hear about how it’s working. Thursday, June 9, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Register for Zoom link.
