Free Webinar Series Available on Innovating Livability for Communities, Starting July 11

June 24, 2019
Communities across the country are navigating rising housing costs and declining transportation infrastructure.
 
Failing to address such issues not only raises social considerations, but can also have legal implications and create liabilities for cities and counties. Best Best & Krieger LLP is offering a free webinar series with a holistic approach focused on putting the “US” back into “housing.”
 
Through an innovation-inspired lens, this BB&K LLP webinar series will include:
  • Discussions about challenges and opportunities for aligning housing and transportation policy;
  • Evaluations of new innovative approaches to land use that consider emerging transportation technologies; and
  • Summaries of legislative developments and funding opportunities for ensuring stable and productive foundations for our communities of the future.
Join BB&K attorneys Ruben Duran, Michael Maurer and Gregory Rodriguez as they share their experiences and knowledge from working with local government agencies like yours to successfully navigate Innovating Livability for Communities.
