State Representative Jay Rodne, 5th District from Snoqualmie, will join other legislators, homebuilders and housing experts in the 2014 Housing Summit, hosted Tuesday, Sept. 23, by the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties.

Focusing on dwindling buildable land in the Puget Sound area, “Accommodating Housing Needs with Less Land” will include presentations by top housing experts.

The free event starts at 7:30 a.m. at Meydenbauer Convention Center, 11100 NE 6th St. in Bellevue.  Space is limited and early reservations can be made online at or by calling the association’s events department at (425) 451-7920.

The program will focus on challenges posed by a shortage of buildable land from both national and local perspectives. The housing summit will explore how best to forge a path forward and meet Growth Management Act housing targets as the Puget Sound area faces a diminishing buildable land supply.
