Car-Light Housing: More affordability, less traffic

We need to address the housing affordability crisis, but we don’t want to make it harder to get around town or harm the climate. Join us for this discussion to:
Learn about the connections between housing affordability, traffic reduction, and climate change; 
Hear what neighboring communities are doing to reduce the need to drive; and 
See how you can help make your community more walkable, affordable, and transit-friendly.
