“It’s complicated,” admits Anne Wyatt, District 2 SLO County Planning Commissioner and Executive Director of Smart Share Housing Solutions. Finding solutions to high housing costs, the lack of affordable housing, and homelessness in our community will require new ideas and innovative efforts. We face a “perfect storm” of rising prices and a population less and less able to pay them and old approaches to the problem are not enough.

Wyatt will draw from her extensive experience with housing issues from government policy making, to private market-rate home rental management, to non-profit housing development to address the issues. As a leader in the movement to offer more affordable and sustainable housing alternatives in our community, she will describe housing options and the alternative housing projects underway locally, including transitional (emergency) housing, home-sharing, accessory dwelling unit production, commercial to residential conversions, movable home allowances, and co-living developments.

“We have housing options available to us and our fellow community members,” Wyatt says, “the big question is whether we’re going to come together to collectively reimagine our policies, our neighborhoods, and our funding priorities to support them.”

Join us on June 1 to learn more.
