With a housing inventory that has remained below one month of inventory for the past several months in the Austin-Round Rock MSA, how has new construction in Central Texas been impacted by rising construction costs and supply chain issues? Join our Land Use Policy team in-person (or virtually) for a panel discussion with David Glenn, Senior Director of Government Relations at the HBA of Greater Austin, and Shawn Kirkpatrick, Director of Public Affairs for KB Home, exploring our region’s housing supply, the impact supply chain issues and rising construction costs are having on new construction, and how it all might impact our overall housing market.
David and Shawn will share what they are seeing in the market; discuss the impact of local regulations and the rising cost of materials and labor have on new construction; highlight what might be coming down the pipeline; and provide members an opportunity to learn more about our region’s housing supply.
ABoR Policy Teams serve as an educational opportunity for ABoR members to participate in deep dives into local policy issues and topics. Policy Teams are where we turn our members into experts on the public policies that impact them.
Note: This meeting will be conducted in-person at ABoR HQ with a virtual option, using Zoom Webinar. While members are certainly welcome to join the discussion virtually, members will have the greatest experience by attending in person.
