The Building Industry Association (BIA) of Fresno-Madera County will host a forum spotlighting future area land usage titled ‘The Fresno-Madera Region: Where Are We Headed?’
The event will take place on Sept. 8 at 11 a.m. at Pardini’s in Salon A on 2257 West Shaw Ave in Fresno.
The forum will feature guest speaker Tim Sullivan of Meyers Research, regarded as one of the country’s leading market experts in residential feasibility studies, strategic planning and product development.
Sullivan will be joined by a panel of leaders including Norm Allinder, Madera County planning director; Bernard Jimenez, deputy director of planning for Fresno County; and PlaceWorks President Randy Jackson, who has prepared general, specific and master plans for Clovis, southwest Fresno, Madera County and Tesoro Viejo.
The forum will explore how the region is evolving, including a discussion of specific challenges and possible solutions. An overview of the local economy and housing will also be presented.
“As the BIA is a leader in these issues, we felt it was important to open this forum up to anyone who has an interest in the housing industry and the growth of our region, and so the public is welcome to attend,” said Mike Prandini, CEO of the Building Industry Association of Fresno/Madera Counties. “It’s a great chance to ask any questions you may have and discuss issues affecting your business with these experts in an interactive and personal setting.”
Tickets are $30 and include lunch. To reserve a space, call the BIA at (559) 226-5900.
