Past Events

Hosted by Assemblymember Anna Caballero & Salinas City Councilman Steve McShane

Time:  6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: Salinas City Hall Rotunda, 200 Lincoln Ave, Salinas

For decades Salinas has suffered some of the greatest housing challenges in the United States. Chronic homelessness has made the situation worse. Solutions such as industry funded housing projects and the recent addition of the Monterey Bay Housing Trust have helped. However, the situation worsens by the day and creative solutions working with the County and State are required. This event is a community meeting on the topic of “State & Local Creative Housing Solutions.” A expert panel has been assembled to share the state of housing and public housing incentives and programs. Guests will hear from various organizations & individuals that have made their careers on the topic. Reports will be followed by discussion and ultimately, question and answers from the public.
