In addition, Dr. David Crowe, NAHB’s senior staff vice president for federal regulatory and housing policy, will explain how multifamily developers can benefit from NAHB’s Local Impact Model. The model can determine the economic benefits of multifamily development and accurately estimate the costs to a particular community. He will introduce the cost side of the model at a special program — “Does Multifamily Housing Pay for Itself? Fight NIMBYism With Facts!” — which will be held in the Multifamily Lounge, N241, 2:00-3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 21.
Exhibitors on the show floor are being encouraged to bring products used by multifamily builders to the show. Those booths will bear a logo indicating that the exhibitor has such products.
