My name is Isaac Hammond-Paul, and I am the Director of Community Development at Homewise. I’m reaching out to invite your membership to a free talk: “How Our Cities Became Parking Lots” taking place on October 4th from 6-8PM at the Scottish Rite Center in Santa Fe. Henry Grabar, journalist, and author of the new highly anticipated book Paved Paradise: How Parking Explains the World, will discuss the impact of parking on the character of neighborhoods, the size and cost of new construction, traffic, transportation, and even the course of floodwaters. He’ll also share how cities like Santa Fe can reform parking in ways that actually make it more convenient for drivers while increasing affordability, walkability, and livability. You can sign up to attend the event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/livability-series-how-our-cities-became-parking-lots-tickets-709709017777?aff=oddtdtcreator.

Also, we are hosting a casual group ride to the event and see first hand some of Santa Fe’s own paved paradises. The ride will meet at 5pm at the Railyard Water
Tower and roll at 5:15pm sharp. Free bike valet provided by Bike Santa Fe will be available at the event location. Bring your lights to get back home and a lock for good measure!

Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like an image/flyer you can post to social media accounts.
