November 12th Green Drinks: Designing Welcoming Suburbs

Join the November 12th Green Drinks meetup to discuss: Designing Welcoming Suburbs

How can we welcome and accommodate diversity, including economic diversity, in Evanston?
How can we minimize congestion through development?
Transit-oriented development (TOD) can be just that tool.

Please join us on November 12 for a discussion of the benefits of TOD that includes mixed-income housing. Our panelists will be
• Gail Schechter, Executive Director, Open Communities
• Lin Ewing, an Evanston realtor and Chair of the Diversity and Fair Housing Committee of NSBAR.

Gail will preview a report showing that TOD is good for the environment and local economies, and if it provides housing at a variety of price points and unit sizes, it builds community as well.  Lin will bring the perspective of an Evanston realtor to her discussion of the market desirability of TOD with mixed-income housing.

When:  Wednesday, November 12, from 6:30-8:30pm
Where:  Farmhouse, 703 Church Street, Evanston
What:  A chance to learn, network, exchange ideas, and get involved!

Networking from 6:30-7:00. Program begins at 7:00 pm.

The event is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us on November 12!
