WEBINAR - PolicyMaker Series: State of Housing in Loudoun

Register Here

Over the last two years, and even more so today, addressing the housing needs of our workforce has become an utmost priority of the Loudoun Chamber. Prior to the pandemic, the largest obstacle to business growth was an inability to find talent to fill our open positions, specifically in hospitality, the trades, educators, and our first responders. Without creating more opportunity for our workforce to access local housing options, business growth and overall economic prosperity for our region will remain challenged.

Join us as we dive into this issue, first, with the expert that is largely credited with identifying the issue in Loudoun, Lisa Sturtevant, Chief Economist with Virginia REALTORS®. Lisa will share with our membership how we identify and classify our “missing middle” of the housing market and its impact on our economy. Following Lisa, we’ll have the opportunity to get an early look at the Loudoun County Unmet Housing Need Strategic Plan (UHNSP) from the Project Manager of this Strategy, Sarah Coyle-Etro. Sarah is responsible for delivering a holistic County-wide plan to address the housing needs of our growing workforce and ensure that a continuum of housing exists as our workforce grows and matures.

Lisa Sturtevant, Chief Economist, Virginia REALTORS®
