The city’s past, present, and future were on the agenda for the town’s 3rd Annual Real Estate Forecast.

There were speakers from a variety of areas including engineers, business professors, and real estate agents.

The meeting looked at the town’s economic growth over the last year to predict new development in the town’s future.

“There’s been tremendous growth in Surf City both on the island and off the island,” Realtor Ladd Gasparovic said. “Today what we’re doing is looking at Surf City on a macro level. We’re gonna be focused on different changes with DOT, road, infrastructure improvements and really where development is going.”

Gasparovic says the new Surf City bridge is just one example of how the town has and will continue to accommodate for growth.
