Creating Happy Communities through Urban Design
An Affordable Housing Breakfast Forum

Is your community a happy one? Are there public spaces for people to gather and connect? How does the physical design of your building and your neighborhood promote (or not) the well-being of your community?

With the increasing popularity of our Affordable Housing Breakfasts, we are finding it necessary to move to a pre-registration and pre-payment model. We regret and apologize for the loss of convenience to our guests and ask for your understanding and cooperation.
