EAH: Presentation on ADU's

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s) are one component, a first step, towards improving affordability of our great city. In setting policy, the power of the private homeowner is often overlooked as government tends to focus on larger projects of several hundred acres of land or thousands of homes. But that can take decades to develop, whereas the local homeowner is more often ready, willing and able to take on small scale alterations and additions that can add dwelling units to a neighborhood, right now! Sprinkled throughout a community, housing capacity can be added without government subsidy, requiring no ongoing maintenance or management on the part of the government. Affordable Housing has never looked this good! 

If you missed it, you can still check out the Slideshow Presentation.
Engineers and Architects Hawaii recorded audio of my talk, which should be avail hopefully in the near future =)
