Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we've had to postpone this program until later this fall. We'll update this page with a new date once it is confirmed, and we hope that you'll join us at that time.


We're improving the SPUR event registration process.
Later this summer, we will launch a new ticketing system and we'll be asking you to register for each event you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.


Hamstrung by Prop. 13, cities often rely on the impact fees from new development to fund infrastructure or other necessary investments. While they can be an important tool, these fees also increase the price of new construction, sometimes rendering projects unfeasible in a high-cost environment like the Bay Area. With this in mind, what are best practices for ensuring that cities have a funding tool while still enabling new development to occur? How are cities and the state thinking about fees today? Join us for a conversation with researchers, city staff and developers grappling with these tensions. Co-presented by SV@Home and the Northern California Section of the American Planning Association
