February 23, 2009

Drew Klacik, senior policy analyst for the IU Center for Urban Policy and the Environment, told about 500 Indianapolis-area Realtors and community leaders that the Midwest is uniquely positioned to rebound from the current economic recession. Klacik delivered his remarks as the keynote speech at the eighth annual Central Indiana Housing Summit, held Feb. 18 at the Indiana Convention Center. Klacik stressed that green technologies, mass transit and government consolidation will help Indianapolis compete with other cities as an attractive area to live and work in the coming years.

Klacik was also interviewed by WTHR on the federal foreclosure bill. He discussed how Hoosier homeowners, who are less likely to be “under water” on their mortgages, are positioned to resume spending more quickly than homeowners in other areas of the country. See the story here.
