Free Housing summit promises lively debate on accommodating growth
Accommodating the region's expanding economy and population is a topic that elicits lively debate. On Tuesday, Sept. 15, industry experts will join three featured speakers at the 2015 Housing Summit to offer their ideas.
Titled "Transportation & Land Supply: Where do we go from here?" the discussion is a presentation of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. The complimentary event at Bellevue's Meydenbauer Center includes networking from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. followed by the program from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Speakers include: Dow Constantine, King County Executive; Josh Brown, executive director, Puget Sound Regional Council; and Matthew Gardner, chief economist at Windermere Real Estate. Their presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with industry experts who will likely propose their own solutions for accommodating the influx of new residents.
Registration may be made online at the Master Builders.
Puget Sound Energy and Parr Lumber Company are sponsoring the Summit.
