New development and redevelopment is often complex in the best of circumstances. Community goals, physical constraints, and market realities don’t always align. This session features insights on the development process and lessons on how to promote (or inadvertently sink) development and redevelopment projects. Communities continue to evolve through new development and redevelopment. What is the difference between a project that moves forward while others languish? No single set of tools work for all communities, but the insights and experienced shared in this session will provide examples and strategies from projects that worked and projects that collapsed. Using real examples and professional experiences, this session will help planners identify and avoid common pitfalls that lead to project setbacks or failures; qualities that attract or detract developer attention; and, criteria to consider when quickly evaluating project feasibility.
