2012 Tri-State Housing Summit

  • 2011 Tri-State Development LogoYOU ARE INVITED!
    2012 Tri-State Housing Summit – June 7

    The Tri-State Development Housing Task Force invites you to join elected officials and business/industry leaders for a day of dialogue about housing issues our region faces including resources, shortfalls and opportunities.

    Adequate housing – like highways, healthcare and retail establishments – is necessary to achieve desired growth and quality of life in a region. For that reason, the Tri-State Development Summit established the Housing Task Force in 2005.

    Our tri-state region is not immune to housing issues that communities around the country face – availability, affordability and quality. That’s why the Housing Task Force’s mission is to provide affordable workforce housing in the tri-state area. This includes:

    • Increasing affordable housing options for the region’s workforce
    • Providing counseling to first-time home buyers
    • Identifying funding sources for housing development throughout the region

    The creation of affordable housing can increase community pride, help attract industry and increases property values and the community tax base. Please join us Thursday, June 7, 2012 on the Campus of Culver Stockton College. Agenda and registration details are below.
