Regional Real Estate Forum @ Cowlitz County Events Center

A strong real estate market with a robust housing element is often viewed as a leading indicator of a thriving local economy. However, in our region, it appears that the demand for all levels of housing currently outweighs the housing inventory. To help local leaders and the public understand what is happening and how the real estate market impacts economic development opportunities, the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments’ Economic Development Program is holding a Regional Real Estate Forum.

Please join us to listen to local experts on housing and development discuss the issues and answer your questions. The event is being sponsored by the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments, the Lower Columbia Board of Realtors, and the Lower Columbia Contractors Association.

Topics include:

  • Status of Existing Housing Stock
  • Analysis of Projected Housing Needs
  • Attracting New Housing Investments
  • Preserving Housing for an Aging Population
  • Enhancing Quality of Place
