Successful housing forum concludes

by Lannie Walker

Guam - The 2nd Affordable Housing Symposium wrapped-up today. Hosted by the federal reserve bank of San Francisco, discussions focused on how the island can develop more housing for island residents that are green and more family friendly.

Craig Nolte with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco said, "We have developers, contractors, we also have government officials and representatives from non profit organizations that are now working together to collaborate and to do more with less going forward and they're networking and brainstorming different ideas to make this community a better place to live."

Nolte adds they are also working with the Guam Realtors Association to establish a new home ownership center on the island to provide assistance to first-time homebuyers.
