CA14 - New Technologies and Paradigms Session 3: Overcoming Barriers to Implementing New Technologies and Paradigms

Tuesday, November 13 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM | 186 « Back

Abstract Text:

Attendees of this session will examine lessons learned from two case studies (presented in earlier sessions) that implemented new paradigms or technologies to further development in affordable communities. The group will break out to work on similar projects that are taking place and teams will work to create an action plan with steps to implement the project. Activities will include brainstorming potential barriers and strategies to overcome them, identify stakeholders and partners needed to achieve success, tools and resources that are available to assist, regulatory changes and other actions needed for success. Attendees will be assisting five teams in creating an action plan to move their project forward to the next level: Affordable Housing in Rochester, MN; Abraham Lincoln High School, San Francisco, CA; Affordable Student-built Multi-Family Housing, St. Paul, MN; Jefferson Elementary School, Berkley, CA; Church by the Side of the Road, Berkley, CA. Note: This session is part of the New Technologies and Paradigms track within CAHS. You are encouraged to select the other sessions within this track, though it is not required.
