Secretary Anthony Foxx to deliver keynote address at 2015 LOCUS Leadership Summit


Great, walkable neighborhoods are stronger when people of all income levels can afford to live there. On June 2-3, real estate developers from across the country will gather to talk about how they can help make that happen as part of the 2015 LOCUS Leadership Summit.

Transportation is a crucial part of this discussion and no one is more important in this arena than the U.S. Department of Transportation. The good news is that USDOT will join the Summit to speak frankly about how developers and transportation advocates can work together to build walkable, equitable communities.

We are excited to announce that U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx will deliver the keynote address at the 2015 LOCUS Leadership Summit. Under Secretary Foxx’s leadership, USDOT is working to make sure transportation investments support working families and America’s broader economy. Foxx’s keynote will provide insights into USDOT’s current programs, its plans for the future, and how real estate developers can be part of the national effort for more equitable, walkable communities. Register today to join the event:

Secretary Foxx is the most recent addition to the Summit’s impressive agenda, which also includes sessions on innovative approaches to financing attainable housing; how to manage affordability in walkable places; tours of successful public-private partnership projects; and discussions about new opportunities for walkable development projects.

The 2015 LOCUS Leadership Summit is the only conference for real estate professionals and local elected officials that offers networking, dealmaking, and hands-on solutions to the financial and policy challenges of building walkable, transit-oriented development. Join real estate developers and investors as well as elected leaders at this two-day event to learn and develop new ways to build more walkable places across the country.

Register today to join Secretary Foxx and the country’s leading smart growth real estate developers in Washington in June.
