Debates Worth Having: Pros and cons of Saltworks

5:30 p.m. | Tuesday, March 29, 2011

5:30 pm reception
6-7pm debate

The proposed Saltworks development in Redwood City would bring as many as 12,000 much-needed housing units to the core of the Bay Area. But it would be built on decommissioned salt ponds at the edge of the Bay, and would thus destroy what could be a large and productive wetlands. Please join SPUR and The Bay Citizen for what promises to be a lively debate. With urban planner Peter Calthorpe, chief designer of the Saltworks, and David Lewis, executive director of Save the Bay.
