A conversation about the crisis in affordable housing is happening in Portola Valley on Saturday, March 3, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Community Hall at 765 Portola Road.
The event, called "Home for All – a Community Conversation About Housing," is intended as a neighborly forum for the sharing of opinions, concerns and ideas about affordable housing, and as a venue for stories about the impacts on housing affordability in light of the high cost of living in the area.
"Young people who grew up in Portola Valley are unable to live in their hometown," town officials say in a statement. "Seniors who wish to downsize from their homes are unable to do so as options do not exist, and the Town’s workforce must drive long distances and pay high rents to be able to contribute to our community’s wellbeing."
Officials ask anyone planning to attend to RSVP, either by calling 851-1700, ext. 259, or by emailing PVConversation@portolavalley.net. Space is limited.
