Burlington Business Association : Annual Summit - Housing and its Link to BTV's Future Economy 01/14/2015
In Burlington the average household spends 44% of its income on housing costs. The business community reports that the local housing market makes it challenging to recruit employees, retain professionals and grow our economy. The good news, however, is that work is being done to address the issue. Projects are on the table.
This Summit will focus on the "Housing Crisis" with a program that informs its members and motivates them to support change.
