Riverside mayor speaks to CAA members


More than 140 rental housing professionals heard from Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey late last month during the California Apartment Association’s inaugural Professional Property Managers Forum.

The event, formally known as Lunch Club, attracted representatives from more than 25 property owners and management companies, as well as industry partners.

During his address, the mayor shared his vision for Riverside, centered on the theme “Together We’re Better.”

Bailey also outlined the city’s accomplishments from the past year, such as the University of California, Riverside, becoming California’s first public medical school in four decades.

Additionally, the mayor discussed economic development projects planned for the coming year, including the completion of the I-215/91 freeway over-changes and the installation of a fiber-optics network to attract new industries.

The event also included an update from the lawfirm Kimball, Tirey and St. John LLP on new laws for 2014, and the release of CAA Inland Empire’s 2014 program and event calendar.

At CAA’s next Professional Property Managers Forum, Jay Parsons, the national market analysis manager for MPF Research, will delve into the economic outlook this year for rental housing in Orange County. The forum is scheduled for Feb. 27 at Radisson Newport Beach.
