Livability and the Connection Between Housing and Transportation

Featuring: David Kack, the Small Urban and Rural Livability Center at the Western Transportation Institute

During this presentation, David will provide an overview of the six livability principles, and then focus on the connection between housing and transportation. The cost of these two items, housing and transportation, typically represent 45-60% of an individual’s or family’s budget. Housing is typically the main focus, but we forget about commuting costs. For example, it may be less expense to pay more for a house that is close to where we work (and play), than to live 30 miles away in “affordable housing” and pay the price to commute each day. David’s presentation should lead to a healthy discussion about where we put our housing, schools and other infrastructure, and how we tend to ignore our costs of commuting.
