The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs hosted a housing market panel discussion on Friday, November 17, 2017 at Centennial Hall.

The purpose of this panel discussion was to engage and inform local elected officials and housing advocates on the complex and timely topic of affordable housing in the Pikes Peak Region. The panelists provided 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 at various prices in the market.

With this and future events, the HBA hopes to further the discussion regarding the complex issues affecting housing affordability in our local market. Providing safe and affordable housing is at the core of the HBA’s mission, and we are honored to be part of this important community conversation.

“Colorado Springs is growing fast, so we want to lead a constructive conversation about what a healthy housing market should look like,” said panelist 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.”
