Underway in federal court, a class action suit takes aim at one impediment to affordable housing: the fees charged by realtors.
I’ve always found realtors ironic and disingenuous listening to them opine on the “free market” when, they stand protected behind one of the largest collectively bargained, price-fixing schemes in the U.S. when it comes to their fees.
Colorado Mountain College (CMC), a leading educational institution serving the entire NWCCOG region, with three full-service residential campuses and eight community campuses, stands as an exemplary model for listening to workforce needs, adapting curriculum to place their students in a position for those opportunities.
How a story such as Whetstone sounds under the golden dome 4 hours away in Denver is something of a mystery to rural resort counties involved in affordable housing. Governor Polis, for one, doesn’t think the system for producing housing is working.
Hosting a major event is like planning for a disaster.
There is a saying among emergency managers that during an incident is no time for introductions, meaning you should know people you will need to know in a crisis well before a disaster is declared.
Build your relationships before an incident. The accumulation of deliberate connections, finding common ground and mutual interest, “breaking bread” or whatever you choose to call it can look like a waste of time to some. It is not.
