Realtors Add Financial Backing, Full Cooperation To Growth Planning Effort

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

The Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors has joined with Hamilton County, the city of Chattanooga, the Greater Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, local foundations, and a host of other public and private organizations in advancing the 40-year growth planning process now getting underway over a 16-county region, encompassing Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia.

Members of the GCAR leadership met with County Mayor Jim Coppinger and Beth Jones, executive director of the Southeast Tennessee Development District, the lead regional organization helping to guide the process, to present a check for $10,000 in support of the effort. Many of the association’s large membership have also pledged their support of collective knowledge and experience in property matters to help guide the effort forward over the next few years that the planning stages are scheduled to take place.

The funding itself was a grant to the local association from the National Association of Realtors, a nationwide organization of over 1,000,000 members working in the real estate industry, that stands as one of the nation’s leading advocates for smart growth planning for regions as well as neighborhoods themselves.
