Wednesday, July 11th, Inframark hosted WHA’s Rising Leaders for a breakfast presentation and a tour of their office. Inframark is one of West Houston Association’s Quality Growth Partners and they nominated employee Jason Demel to participate in the third class of the Rising Leaders Program.
Todd Burrer, Inframark Vice President, presented to our group about what a MUD does and why our community should care about them. Burrer explained how MUDs were created, the traditional model they formed into and the different types of MUDs forming today. The group also took a moment to discuss how MUDs play a key role in maintaining the housing affordability in the Houston market. A new home sold in a MUD is approximately $150K less than a new home sold outside of a MUD.
“Inframark is honored to have hosted the WHA Rising Leader event recently. This group of community leaders joined together to share their points of view regarding the role of MUDs in the quality development of our community. We discussed the historical role of MUDs in our community, and their future roles in a post Harvey world. WHA is very fortunate to have such a prestigious group of leaders working towards quality development for the region,” said Burrer.
Our Rising Leaders group made up of lawyers, engineers and developers shared their industry knowledge and how MUDs intertwine with many different sectors of their businesses. They also discussed the challenges they face including correcting the false narrative about MUDs and changing public opinion. Below we have included the presentation given to our group by Burrer.
After the group discussion Elizabeth Reeves (Account Manager) and Mark Yentzen (Director of Client Services – Texas MUDs) led a tour of Inframark’s office and highlighted the open concept, which has been working well for office collaboration. WHA would like to thank Inframark for generously hosting and look forward for our future work together.
