Thank you to everyone who attended our September market tour in Maple Valley. The weather was fantastic, and we enjoyed a beautiful view of Mount Rainier from Lake Wilderness Lodge, the venue for our luncheon. Mayor Sean Kelly began the program with an enthusiastic overview of Maple Valley. Representatives of the City's Economic Development, Community Development, and Public Works departments gave presentations on recent development activity and ongoing opportunities. This was followed by a panel of local market participants who discussed their experiences in Maple Valley developing projects or working with developers and investors. All the presenters and panelists were extremely informative and engaging. After lunch, we boarded two buses for a guided tour of development projects and sites throughout Maple Valley.
The development and investment opportunities in Maple Valley are impressive and we were honored to help promote these opportunities both locally and globally to our FIABCI members. We’re very grateful to the City of Maple Valley for their partnership in organizing this event. In particular, Tim Morgan, its Economic Development Manager, was instrumental in bringing everything together. The event really was a huge success!
We're going even bigger this year by partnering with even more real estate industry groups, looking to surpass the more than 200 commercial and residential real estate professionals that attended last year's event.
This summit is bringing together organizations and public figures that are actively working on the affordable housing issue in our region. Collectively, we can find meaningful solutions that will bring about long-lasting change
