Breaking Ground: Walworth County Housing Summit

Breaking Ground: Walworth County Housing Summit

Monday, September 25, 2023 (7:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (CDT)


This is NOT a Lakes Area REALTORS Association event. This is a notice of an event being sponsored by other community organizations, including the Walworth County Economic Development Alliance.


The event will take most of the morning and will feature state experts on housing, developers working in this space, municipal leaders, legislators, and resource partners. The lack of workforce housing is holding back our economic growth and it's impacting our school districts. This summit will explore ways that Walworth County can collaborate with public/private stakeholders to make market rate housing more affordable for our workforce.
