Development from a Developer's Perspective

A NEDA Webinar

10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.


We don't often get the developers side of what it takes to make investments in our communities. This webinar will explore the issues they face when trying to finance and construct local development projects. We all know how we see developers. In this webinar, you will hear how developers see our communities. You will hear about best practices on how communities make it easy for development, and some worst case examples of how communities made it difficult. You will also gain perspective on the best and worst practices in local economic development.

The three primary take-a-ways for those who participate in this webinar will be:

  1. Learn how developers conceive projects including project financing, overall cost to build, and estimated return on investment.
  2. Gain information on what developers look for in a site and the tools they use to identify said sites.
  3. Know what a community should and should not do if they are looking to create an atmosphere that is attractive to developers.
