The Affordable Housing Tour is an annual event that brings together community members, leaders, and public officials to show examples of quality affordable homes in Silicon Valley. It is our hope that these tours help participants figure out what elements – landscaping, setbacks, architecture, roof slopes, density, etc. – they like and dislike and what would be key to building a better community and quality of life in their community.
Our tour in Palo Alto showcased a variety of affordable housing communities from affordable apartments for families and seniors to housing for those with special needs. The variety of these home developments reflects the variety of need in our community. Affordable homes serve many of the essential people in our community, such as our store clerks, police officers, city employees, and teachers. When we offer these essential community members an opportunity to live where they work, they are more likely to plant roots in a community.
