Abstract: The development of transportation systems and the development of affordable housing are two very different kinds of processes.  One is logical, long-range and (mostly) orderly; the other is entreprenurial, many-layered and opportunistic.  This presentation will demystify how affordable housing is sited, financed and developed.  It will highlight places in this process where transportation planners might be able to intervene and partner with local jurisdictions and developers to generate affordable, sustainable living environments where both housing and transportation costs are considered.
