CLSA to Host Roundtable on Bay Area Housing and Infrastructure Needs, April 4

March 17, 2018
By Reese Isbell

The San Francisco Bay Area is an increasingly challenging housing market. This, along with the region’s many transportation difficulties, accounts for a growing number of calls by industry for solutions. CLSA has been part of that increased dialogue and joined many initiatives over the years to work with other industry partners, community nonprofits, public groups, and elected officials. The years ahead will be filled with many opportunities to engage and search for outcomes that benefit the industry, employees, and residents of the Bay Area.

As part of this ongoing community dialogue, CLSA is organizing a special event in South San Francisco. A roundtable discussion and lunch will be held on Wednesday, April 4, at Five Prime Therapeutics in South San Francisco.

Agenda: 
11:30 am Registration Opens
12:00 pm Lunch & Open Discussion

This will serve as an opportunity to discuss housing and infrastructure needs in South San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. We will gather interested stakeholders and have an open dialogue about a shared vision and common commitment to ensuring the long-term success of the thriving biotech cluster East of 101 in SSF and throughout the Bay Area.

At the lunch, we will focus on the need for regional housing, transportation planning, economic growth, and the long-term viability of the industrial, manufacturing, and R&D needs in South San Francisco and the Bay Area. This inaugural roundtable discussion presents an opportunity to inform attendees and participants about current local and regional plans, as well as engage with city and community leaders about short and long-term needs and opportunities for shared housing solutions.

Further, in the coming year, CLSA will be seeking to provide an industry and community voice to the many housing proposals at the local governmental level, through ballot measures in the June and November elections, and state legislation which promotes housing solutions. CLSA welcomes your involvement in these endeavors as we all seek to maximize housing opportunities for employees and transportation solutions between home and office.

We hope to see you at the upcoming lunch on April 4. For more information on the subject or questions, please contact Reese Isbell, CLSA’s Director of Local Government and Community Relations (risbell@califesciences.org).
