“Housing Crisis” seems to be the daily headline of Silicon Valley’s news outlets. The issue is bigger than housing affordability,  as the crisis is one that threatens the foundation of our community and impacts all citizens of our great valley, regardless of demographic or socioeconomic status. There is no silver bullet, but the elements that solutions will need to encompass include; affordability and quality, accessibility and vibrancy, and connectivity and mobility.

Solutions will require different government agencies and political leaders working together, across silos, along with private partners and community groups to find common ground, and use innovative new ways of operating to speed the development of housing; housing that encourages healthful and environmentally-friendly communities.

Del Mar High School, in the heart of the Silicon Valley, is an example of a location and environment that is worth exploring innovative new ways to tackle the housing crisis. Conveniently located near existing transit, next to an urban village and with approximately 41-acres of land, Del Mar could present an opportunity to add housing for teachers, staff, retirees and potential workers from local businesses in a mixed-use manner, complementary to the surrounding urban village.

But, Del Mar is just one of many public lands throughout Santa Clara County that could be used to create housing for the “missing middle” and more.

The forum at Del Mar will be a multi-panel discussion with various subject matter experts on what has worked and not worked in other locales, potential partners, financing options and what would be required for a public agency or board to create housing opportunities on land under their stewardship.

  1. Hello,
    I’d like to attend the Mar. 29 meeting regarding Del Mar. The link above says “sales closed” but tickets are free. I’ve also tried contacting you direct at the email above, but my requests keep coming back as non-deliverable. Does this mean anyone can attend without a ticket, or is this a closed meeting.

      I responded via email, but, in case, it didn’t make it to your inbox, the registration site is working again. It appears that the wrong date was entered into the field for the end-date (I had it as 5/9, instead of 5/29). My apologies.

  2. Good Afternoon,

    I was registered to attend your event yesterday evening.

    Unfortunately I had to go home as I have been feeling under the weather.

    I am interested in knowing how the discussion went or if there are any forms that I could review.

    Kind regards,

    Jonathan Perez
