"What's the Best Way to Boost Affordable Housing?"

KQED's Forum with Michael Krasney, November 25, 2013:

Listen here.

The Bay Area's housing market is white hot, and that's left low and middle income people struggling to find a place to live within their means. As part of our Priced Out series, examining the high cost of living in the Bay Area, we take a regional look at affordable housing. How can we ensure that the Bay Area remains a place for more than the very rich? We'll discuss different approaches and innovative ideas for maintaining, and creating new, lower cost housing.

Guests:

Gabriel Metcalf, executive director of SPUR, the San Francisco-based urban planning think tank

Peter Cohen, co-director of the Council of Community Housing Organizations

Karen Chapple, associate director, Institute for Urban and Regional Development at the University of California, Berkeley
