LOCUS, SGA’s coalition of real estate developers and investors who advocate for walkable, attainable housing near transit, is excited to announce the addition of three new Steering Committee members! Over the years, LOCUS has achieved many important milestones such as the introduction of the REHAB Act, the publication of the Great Real Estate Reset, and foundational work in Opportunity Zones. These successes are due in large part to the expertise and leadership of our Steering Committee.
Our new members bring unique perspectives on affordable housing, financing, and equitable real estate development and we look forward to working with them to enhance LOCUS’ advocacy agenda and strategy going forward. Welcome to LOCUS, Alecia, Efren, and Glenn!
