Dwindling resources for transportation and transit agencies have reduced transit options and transportation capacity for those that need them most. Transit dependent and “drive till you can afford it” households need efficient and reliable access to jobs, services, and support networks as much as any other demographic group. Yet affordable housing supported by good transportation networks is increasingly difficult to find, and what we consider ideal communities- economically and racially diverse, walkable, near services, schools and parks- are often limited to those with higher incomes.
What does this mean in your community and what can Oregonians do to balance location, cost, and access to housing? HLA is bringing together national and state experts to explore these concepts and issues, and consider ways to support a community vision that does not leave anyone behind. In particular, conference speakers will consider how to distribute transportation infrastructure equitably across an entire community.

We are individuals who believe strongly in the role of land use and transportation that supports great, diverse, livable communities. As an exhibitor or a sponsor, you will reach an influential and diverse group of advocates, attorneys, planners, developers, public and elected officials, consultants, academics, and public health advocates.
