LOCUS, Latin for “place,” is a national coalition of real estate developers and investors who advocate for sustainable, equitable, walkable development in America’s metropolitan areas.
Across the country demand is high for real estate in sustainable, walkable urban places. Yet too often, public policy hampers developers’ ability to build the development that would meet this demand. LOCUS brings together real estate developers and investors from across the country to change policy at the local, state, and federal level and to build neighborhoods that are more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable for America’s future.
Changes in federal policy, infrastructure, real estate finance, mobility and technology present new challenges for the real estate industry and local leaders to navigate in order to meet America’s demand for vibrant and inclusive walkable neighborhoods.
Join LOCUS, in partnership with the Local Leaders Council and the Transit-Oriented Development Peer Network, at the 2018 LOCUS National Leadership Summit: Rebuild America’s Neighborhoods to learn about important housing and tax policy changes, the future of infrastructure and real estate finance, the impact of technology on mobility, the role of equity in neighborhood redevelopment and LOCUS’s 2018 policy recommendations for federal policy makers. The LOCUS Leadership Summit will feature interviews and roundtable discussions with top industry leaders and elected officials and in-person meetings with federal policy-makers to discuss policies that affect triple bottom line development and walkable communities.
