Cities throughout the Bay Area are debating how best to add new housing as well as what the affordable housing requirements should be. But what is the appropriate role for regional government? Should the Bay Area’s regional agencies require all new commercial developments to pay a fee to support affordable housing? Should there be regional housing bonds? Join a group of regional housing policy experts in a discussion about regional housing solutions.
