Larson Housing Policy Leadership Awards given for the nation’s most outstanding housing policies at its fall meeting in New York City.The award recognizes exemplary state and local programs, policies, and practices which support the production, rehabilitation, or preservation of affordable and workforce housing. It honors state or local governmental agencies with innovative policy initiatives that provide ongoing and sustainable support for affordable and workforce housing. Specifically, these policies should support the creation and preservation of housing affordable to households earning at or below 120 percent of area median income.Pasadena’s recognition was based on its housing policy and programs which have resulted in the development of over 5,000 housing units in transit-oriented areas, including 1,370 units of affordable and workforce housing. Pasadena’s commitment to its housing vision, community engagement, and informed dialog has produced a highly integrated and effective mix of goals, policies, and programs for its 2014-2021 housing element plan. Implementing a comprehensive set of policies, the city of Pasadena was aptly placed at the top of the State of California’s Department of Housing and Community Development “Housing Elements Best Practices” list. Policies, programs and tools mentioned in the application were Pasadena’s Inclusionary Housing and Density Bonus Ordinances, fee waivers for affordable housing, www.PasadenaHousingSearch.com, and Project HOUSED, the City’s housing first program for the chronically homeless.The Robert C. Larson Housing Policy Leadership Awards program was created in 2011, with the purpose of honoring the legacy of the late Robert C. Larson, former ULI Foundation Chairman and longtime ULI trustee. The award’s criteria were structured so that it provides visibility to exemplary state or local governments that provide ongoing and sustainable support for the production, rehabilitation or preservation of workforce housing. Policy programs are judged on a number of factors, including impact on the supply of workforce housing, comprehensiveness of the tools and programs employed involvement of public-private partnerships, and the ability to leverage private and nonprofit funds, among other criteria.

A high resolution (1 km line spacing) aerogeophysical survey was conducted over a region near the East Antarctic Ice Sheet’s Dome C that may hold a 1.5 million year old climate record. New ice thickness data derived from an airborne coherent radar sounder was combined with unpublished data that was unavailable for earlier compilations. We find under the primary candidate region elevated rough topography, near a number of subglacial lakes, but also regions of smoother bed. The high resolution of this ice thickness dataset also allows us to explore the nature of ice thickness uncertainties in the context of radar geometry and processing.
Pioneering electro-hip-hop-soul producer Derek Vincent Smith, better known as Pretty Lights, has released a new live compilation from his 2015 run at Telluride, Colorado’s Telluride Town Park with his Analog Future Band featuring Adam Deitch (Lettuce/Break Science) on the drums, Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce) on guitar, Borahm Lee (Break Science) on keys, NOLA staple Brian Coogan on keys/organ, Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce/Shady Horns) on trumpet, Scott Flynn on trombone, and award-winning turntablist Chris Karns on the decks.Said Smith in a statement about the release, “I’ve thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch…with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life. PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping. These two nights in Telluride were an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue.”In typical Pretty Lights fashion, the new release is available for download here free of charge.
