The next CASA Technical Committee meeting will take place at Bay Area Metro Center, 375 Beale Street, San Francisco, in the Yerba Buena Room, first floor on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM. The agenda will be posted on the MTC site in advance of the meeting. All CASA meetings are open to the public.
CASA – the Committee to House the Bay Area – convenes a diverse, multi-sector set of partners in the Bay Area to identify and act upon game-changing regional solutions to the Bay Area’s chronic housing affordability challenges.
CASA includes leaders from across the Bay Area who will be working to build an actionable political consensus around (1) increasing housing production at all levels of affordability, (2) preserving existing affordable housing, and (3) protecting vulnerable populations from housing instability and displacement.
CASA is led by three Co-Chairs (Fred Blackwell, Leslye Corsiglia and Michael Covarrubias), and Steve Heminger, Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. It is structured around a Steering Committee and Technical Committee composed of elected officials, thought leaders and policy experts from across the region. The CASA effort is supported and staffed by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and a team of consultants. Learn more about CASA’s members and leadership.
From Summer 2017 through Fall 2018 the Co-Chairs and Committees will develop a suite of integrated legislative, financial, policy and regulatory recommendations that together will form a Regional Housing Implementation Strategy. The plan is expected to include innovative financing strategies, state and local legislation, and recommendations to address the current regulatory environment, with a final report slated for release in late 2018.
