This event is exclusively for SPUR business members and invited guests. Please contact Amanda Fasenmyer, director of corporate philanthropy, at [email protected] for information on how your organization can get involved and support our work.

As the Bay Area passes the one-year mark of the pandemic, ways of living and working have changed drastically. These changes affect movement in cities, downtowns and neighborhoods. With less commuting and more walking and biking, cities have evolved to meet the changing needs of residents with slow streets, outdoor dining, and pop-up shops. As we go forward, living and working trends will continue to evolve and so will our urban environment.

Join SPUR for a conversation with Rosalynn Hughey, incoming Deputy City Manager for the City of San José, on how the city is responding to shifting behaviors and how development might look different in the future. The conversation will be followed by a panel discussion on living locally and the new 15-minute city.  

Registration closes on Monday, April 19th at 5 p.m. A link to the program will be sent to registered attendees on the evening of April 19th.
Please email advance questions for the speakers to Livesey Pack at [email protected].
