Legalize Everything: Lessons From Fresno on Housing Affordability

DescriptionFresno was still relatively affordable until the pandemic opened the opportunity for more remote work. Now, Fresno renters are facing some of the highest increases of any metro across the US. And despite few zoning restrictions, home builders say they are limited by several barriers to new construction. This panel discussion will consider these problems and potential solutions. The conversation features the founder and Executive Director of Fresnoland Danielle Bergstrom, Fresno Housing Chief Real Estate Officer Michael Duarte, Faith in the Valley Lead Housing Community Organizer Alexandra Alvarado, President and CEO of Downton Fresno Partnership Elliott Balch, and Senator Caballero's District Director and Soledad Mayor Anna Velazquez. This panel discussion took place on Thursday, June 15th, at the Fresno Art Museum in partnership with Fresnoland.
