A Revelatory Idea in Housing

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, January 30, 2020

We’re improving the SPUR event registration process.
SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.

More attention has been paid recently to the development potential of church parking lots, with some cities relaxing development standards to facilitate the construction of affordable housing on religious properties. Using statewide data, the Terner Center has examined how much land could actually be opened up for development through these reforms and where this land is located. This work has implications for scaling these ideas statewide as part of a broader solution for facilitating more housing to meet our needs. Join us as we discuss the results of this research and hear from stakeholders who are building and guiding housing on religious property. Co-presented by the Terner Center for Housing Innovation.
