Date & Time
Wed, Apr 07 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Santa Barbara is in need of long-term, sustainable urban and suburban development solutions. We need to consider our present and future urban design needs within the context of keeping Santa Barbara’s character. Utilizing the method of looking to our past and to experts to give us clarity and direction for making decisions about Santa Barbara’s future, we’ll be joined by Daniel Parolek, an architect, urbanist and the founder of Opticos Design in San Francisco. Daniel has been working in urban placemaking and master planning for two decades and is the author of Missing Middle Housing – Thinking Big and Building Small to Respond to Today’s Housing Crisis, a how-to book exploring these issues published earlier this year.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion featuring prominent local voices and leading minds in the history, methodology and practice of principled urban development, as well as an opportunity for audience Q&A.
This series is sponsored by Allen Construction, Appleton Partners LLP, Ashley & Vance Engineering, Inc., Cearnal Collective, Suzanne Elledge Planning & Permitting Services, Inc., Giffin & Crane General Contractors, LLC, Harrison Design, Santa Barbara Independent, and Village Properties Realtors.
