Citizens Greener Evanston hosts a Green Drinks discussion on the benefits of transit-oriented development that includes mixed-income housing at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12, at Farmhouse, 703 Church St.
Panelists will be Gail Schechter, executive director of Open Communities, and Lin Ewing, chair of the Diversity and Fair Housing Committee of the North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors.
Schechter will preview a report showing that transit-oriented development is good for the environment and local economies, and that if it provides housing at a variety of price points and unit sizes, it builds community as well.
Ewing will bring the perspective of an Evanston real estate agent to her discussion of the market desirability of transit-oriented development with mixed-income housing.
Networking at 6:30 p.m. Program begins at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
