Join the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce for an insight into how cities are continuing to evolve under environmental, technological, and social trends. We will be joined by Pacific Northwest Developer, Mark Miksis who will be presenting the company’s current projects across Oregon, Idaho, and Washington and outlining deChase’s current investment thesis: “Intermountain West Strategy” which consists of mixed-use, multi-family development projects (market rate and workforce housing) in secondary, outdoor lifestyle markets across the Intermountain West. Mark will provide insight on how communities are evolving to attract businesses and talent into their region, ways in which Springfield measures up against communities of similar size, and what competitive advantage(s) our area holds that we can better utilize.
From ASAE Foresight Works – Urban areas are changing under the influence of unfolding economic, environmental, technological, and social trends. COVID-19 has spawned many acute effects, some of which are proving persistent – especially those involving where people work. City shapes and density are shifting, but the appeal of cities for economic, social, cultural, and other qualities – remains. Meanwhile, the effects of climate change on cities are becoming immediate rather than theoretical.
