Using local issues mobilization funds, the Loveland-Berthoud Association of REALTORS held a reception for the City Council and key staff on June 23. Chair Bob Skillman provided a brief report on the local real estate market. This led to a wide-ranging discussion of affordable housing policies, capital expansion fees and funding for I-25.
LBAR was invited to attend the July meeting of the Construction Advisory Committee to discuss the possibility of a municipal construction defects ordinance, something City staff has briefly discussed but not pursued. City Manager Bill Cahill invited LBAR to participate in the revamping of the City’s capital expansion fee policy. The purpose of the reception was to encourage a closer relationship between LBAR and City decision makers and the dialog is already bearing fruit.
