HOUSING, LAND USE & DEVELOPMENT LECTURESHIP
Understanding and Challenging Opposition to Housing Construction in California's Urban Areas
Sacramento, CA - UC Center Sacramento hosted the inaugural Housing, Land Use, and Development Lectureship on December 1, 2016. Open to faculty and researchers from throughout the UC system, the Lectureship facilitates research focusing on evidence-based public policy as it relates to housing in California.
The winner was Paavo Monkkonen, Associate Professor of Urban Planning at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
Professor Monkonnen's research focused on the role of new housing supply in California. His paper seeks to provide essential background for understanding the economics of housing markets, the motivations of opponents to new housing and higher density in California’s cities and what might be done to overcome this opposition. The lecture, “Understanding and Challenging Opposition to Housing Construction in California's Urban Areas”, included a policy brief and white paper, available above.
This program is made possible by a generous unrestricted gift from the Center for California Real Estate, an institution dedicated to the advancement of real estate knowledge.
