COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (PRWEB) November 14, 2017
The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs (CSHBA) will host a housing market panel discussion on Friday, November 17 from 7:30-10 a.m. at the Board of County Commissioners Hearing Room in Centennial Hall located at 200 South Cascade Avenue.
The panel’s purpose is to engage and inform local elected officials, housing advocates, and building industry representatives on the complex and timely topic of affordable housing in the Pikes Peak Region. The panelists will provide economic data that illustrates the current overall housing market – for sale and rental, single family and multifamily, existing and new housing – as well as perspectives on housing across the price spectrum.
“Colorado Springs is growing fast, so we want to lead a constructive conversation about what a healthy housing market should look like,” said Kevin Walker, president of Walker Schooler District Managers, a consultancy for special district management, land development, entitlement and construction management. “We’re fortunate to have an esteemed group of experts join us in illuminating these issues.”
Panel members include:
- Tom Binnings, Economist, Summit Economics

- Laura Nelson, Rental Market Representative, Executive Director for the Apartment Association of Southern Colorado
- Todd Anderson, Builder/Developer, Building Colorado

- Andrea Barlow, Moderator, N.E.S. Land Planning
- Kevin Walker, Introductions, Walker Schooler District Managers
