ABA panel discussion on affordable housing
On Thursday evening, I will appear on a panel discussion—“The Housing Crunch in Desirable Cities – Planning Alternatives and Legal Consequences”—as part of the American Bar Association annual meeting in San Francisco. Moderated by Nadia Costa of Miller Starr Regalia, the panel also will include Cecily Barclay of Perkins Coie, Professor Steven Eagle of George Mason, and Minming Wu of the Federal Transit Authority. My remarks will focus on the important constitutional protections that limit how and under what circumstances local governments may “exact” affordable housing concessions from private property owners. I hope to see you there (or at least at the post-panel cocktail reception graciously hosted by Allen Matkins).
