Debates Worth Having: Does Inclusionary Housing Create Affordability?

Evening Forum

Many cities around the Bay Area require that developers building projects of a certain size pay an affordable housing fee or, alternatively, offer a percentage of their units at a below-market-rate price that is affordable to low- or middle-income households. In theory, this inclusionary housing increases the availability of affordable residential units in our communities, but its opponents argue that the opposite is actually true. Join us for a debate between two of the region’s housing experts on the controversial topic of whether inclusionary housing makes housing more affordable. Co-presented by AIA San Francisco and ULI San Francisco.
