How to Use Simulations in Housing Planning: Two Case Studies

It’s one of the great challenges for urban local governments facing population growth demands: how to plan for future housing needs without sparking general community opposition.

Join us where we take a look at the first cities to use Balancing Act Simulate for Housing Sutherland Shire, Australia, and Cupertino, California to help engage communities on their housing plans.

You will learn how each of these jurisdictions needed to get public input on how to meet a numerical housing goal, and each had distinct use cases that have resulted in versions of the sim: type of housing, areas to increase density, and specific sites.

This webinar features leaders from Australia and the United States sharing the version of the simulation they used, but also describing how the simulation fits into the housing planning process, including working with planning commissions and public officials.
