    Stumberg Hall, 3206 Fairfax Walk, Austin, TX 78705, USA
    What's the big deal about divorce? Why should we read and talk about it when everyone around us seems to be fine with it? The truth is: no matter what our family background, our age, or our state in life is, we all need to rediscover the immense impact that family life has on us and on our culture.

About The Event

Nobody loves a commute, but many jobs are located in high-cost areas of the city. How can cities grow in ways that keep housing costs down but still flourish economically? Join us and city planner/local economist, Justin Golbabai, for dinner and conversation at The Clay Pit to better understand the challenges of housing affordability. The dinner is free, but we gratefully accept donations. Seating is limited to 20.

Justin Golbabai is a planner and local economist who lives and works in College Station, Texas. He holds a Bachelors of Arts in Economics and Sociology from the University of Notre Dame and a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Kansas. He also is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) and is accredited through the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU-A). Driven by the question “What environment best facilitates human flourishing?”, his career has taken him to unique places – from the halls of British Parliament, to a shelter for immigrants and refugees, to work as a city and neighborhood planner. In his blog, The New Localization, Justin writes on how cities and towns can build strong local economies.

Justin currently serves as the Planning Administrator for the City of College Station, Texas. In this role, he leads a team of city planners responsible for development review and long range planning. Prior to his current post, Justin managed the City of Austin's Neighborhood Partnering Program, leading the program to national recognition as a model for sustainability and innovation.
