Ensuring Opportunity Zones Work for All

May 15, 2019

Chris Coes, vice president of land use and development for Smart Growth America, spoke at the Housing Opportunity Committee on May 15 during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C. Coes discussed opportunity zones and presented risks of community displacement. It's important, he said, that real estate professionals consider vulnerable populations and businesses to ensure they, too, benefit from growth and redevelopment.
