New Hampshire Housing readies 2020 Homeownership Conference

Incremental development, state housing needs assessment on the agenda

Getting more homes built in New Hampshire communities through incremental development – supporting small-scale real estate development projects – is the focus of New Hampshire Housing’s 2020 Homeownership Conference, to be held from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 3, at the Manchester Country Club.

John Anderson, a founding member of the Incremental Development Alliance, will be the keynote speaker.

He will discuss how his organization provides training to small developers, with the goal of enabling thousands of small (one-to-three-story) development projects. They focus on working with communities on infill development.

In addition, Russ Thibeault, president of Applied Economic Research of Laconia, will present his housing needs assessment report, which will be released this spring.

Following that a discussion on housing production will be held, featuring Rachel Eames, owner/broker, Eames Realty Services; Jen Hopkins, director, single-family housing, New Hampshire Community Loan Fund; and James Gallagher, senior vice president, commercial lending, Merrimack County Savings Bank.

Registration is $35 and includes a full breakfast and parking. To register, visit
