We cordially invite you to a morning dedicated to advancing housing attainability in our city. A-Zs of ADUs Housing  Breakfast is a not-to-be missed event for those invested in the future of Albuquerque's housing.

8 a.m. - 10  a.m.

Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors
1635 University Blvd. NE

Join us as we delve into the recent triumph for housing advocates - the approval of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in Albuquerque - and explore the new horizons presents for our community. We will be joined by guest speakers from Tucson, who have helped steward the adoption of ADUs in their city with a model that can be replicated in New Mexico. This is a prime opportunity to connect with stakeholders, discuss the evolving landscape and share successful regional experiences.

We look forward to your participation in shaping the future of attainable housing our region.

Valerie Lane and Lisa Bowers established The Urban Infill Project in 2023 in response to the need for supplementary housing solutions in Tucson and surrounding Southern Arizona Communities. They both have established careers in Tucson, facilitating growth and construction and are passionate about the needs of their communities. They have come together with an explicit mission and have all the tools needed to provide clarity and ease in the process of building opportunity through housing.

Valerie Lane became a Registered Architect in Tucson in 2015.  She has run an Architecture firm specializing in small-scale in-fill housing, historic preservation, and community design since 2009. She has taught Structures, Building Technologies, and Construction courses in the School of Architecture at the University of Arizona since 2014.  She has a Realtor’s License and owns a property development company, Valley Alley Community Development. In everything she does, Valerie exhibits unwavering passion around all things related to housing and community. The Urban Infill Project is a continuation of her work and desire to provide viable housing solutions to the greater Tucson community.

In 2001, Lisa acquired Metro Permit Express, and in 2013 formed Tucson Expediting & Development (TED); creating a Metro Tucson area bridge between clients and municipal officials that has become known as the foremost expert in navigating various Building Codes, Ordinances and Design requirements for the private development community. In 2022 Lisa rebranded to form Sonoran Development Consultants and is a household name and necessity in the industry. Lisa easily navigates permitting obstacles and orchestrates a cohesive relationship between design teams and reviewing municipal agencies. Not only does she provide the service of navigating processes for Developers; she also provides local municipalities with customer perspectives and guides them in their internal processes so that the two worlds can find common ground on which to work.
