NPH and Silicon Valley @Home partnered to tour affordable homes in Santa Clara County with leaders from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission on March 30.
MTC shares NPH’s nine-county footprint and works with the Association of Bay Area Governments to facilitate housing connections to transit. MTC executive director Steve Heminger said, “We have transportation problems in the Bay Area, but we have a housing crisis in the Bay Area. They have influence on each other and we need to work together on solutions.”
The delegation toured sites featuring transit connections and showcasing the longevity and attractiveness of affordable homes. With support from developers and SV@Home, the tour targeted:
“It was a great opportunity to showcase the quality and sustainability of affordable homes. The properties and the residents really tell our story of creating transit-oriented affordable homes and strong communities,” said Amie Fishman. “Our only regret was not having enough time to visit more locations, but we hope to do it again soon!”
