audience at Getz lecture

The PACE Center for Applied Housing Research hosted its inaugural Distinguished Speaker event at the SF State Downtown Campus on Nov 8. Ed Goetz, director of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Minnesota, gave a fascinating and energetic presentation on “Housing policy and the O-Word: Getting beyond the mistakes and constraints of the ‘Opportunity’ paradigm.” The talk was attended by approximately 35 students, faculty and affordable housing practitioners from around the Bay Area. The same day, PACE Professor Ayse Pamuk and colleagues from the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development and Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corp gave the visiting speaker a tour of the Clementina Towers, a public housing project recently rehabilitated under HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration program.  View Slides and Watch Video
