Event Description:
Join the Thurston County Chamber Forum, Wednesday, July 11, at 11:30 a.m. at the Hotel RL Olympia and learn about the current housing shortage in Thurston County.

Housing in Thurston County is increasingly scarce and expensive, which means residents are struggling to meet a basic need. “The data is telling us that we don’t have enough housing,” said Marc Daily, executive director of Thurston Regional Planning Council. “Vacancy rates are so low that the lack of supply and increase in demand due to population growth is causing prices to go up higher than we expected. “This is complicated by the demographics of our community — our population is getting older, household sizes are decreasing and housing options are not reflecting this change.”

Forum attendees will hear from a panel of experts about how Thurston County can use a local approach to ease the housing squeeze. Panelists include:
•             Zach Kosturos, President - Prime Locations
•             Derek Harris, Deputy Director – Community Youth Services
•             Trish Gregory, Executive Director –  Family Support Center
•             Keith Stahley, Community Planning and Development Director – City of Olympia

The cost to attend Forum is $35 for general admission; $25 for online prepaid chamber members and $30 for members at the door. Register today!

July Forum is sponsored by CPC Landscape, Olympia Orthopaedic Associates, The Firs Senior Living Community, TAGS Awards & Specialties.
