San Francisco is a zoning nightmare and folks are getting priced out of
this beautiful city. Does it have to be this way? Spoiler: No.

About this event

American cities everywhere are feeling the pain of poor land use, and San
Francisco is getting the brunt of it. Housing prices are sky high and folks
are fleeing the state just to find a place to live. But this is a problem
with a solution.

Join Young Voices for an exciting evening that gets to the heart of city
planning. On August 23rd, Nolan Gray, author of the newly-released book
Arbitrary Lines, will be in conversation with Reason Magazine’s Christian
Britschgi on how to change things around for California’s residents.

Refreshments will be provided. Parking will be limited—walking, public
transit, or rideshare is suggested if possible. Unfortunately, the space is
not wheelchair-accessible.

Nolan Gray is the research director for California YIMBY. Gray earned a
Master of City and Regional Planning degree at Rutgers University and
received BAs in philosophy and political science from the University of
Kentucky. He was a Research Fellow in the Urbanity Project at the Mercatus
Center at George Mason University. His research focuses on land-use
regulation, housing affordability, and urban design.

Christian Britschgi is an associate editor at Reason, where he writes about
housing, transportation, and urban policy. After graduating from Portland
State University with a degree in political science, Britschgi eventually
made his way into the world of journalism. Now, his reporting focuses on
the failures of government micromanagement of land use as well as the
ongoing effort to reform America’s zoning codes.

Britschgi’s work can be found in outlets throughout the nation, including
The American Conservative, The College Fix, The Lens,, The
Orange County Register, the Daily News, The New York Post, and Jacobite.
