In difficult economic times, public developments and public-private ventures can be the drivers that help communities stay afloat. In addition to the jobs provided by the development of new projects, they also contribute to the community's attractive built environment, global competitiveness and the attraction and retention of talented workers.
With a growing demand for publicly funded and public-private partnership projects, now is the time for communities both large and small to take proposed developments off the shelf, reexamine stalled projects and bring them into reality. Understanding how to conceive, finance, construct and operate complex – and all the steps in between – can be a challenge.
In the spring of 2010, IEDC will showcase a new technical conference that teaches economic developers, local government staff and elected officials and the development community how to complete projects that contribute to local economic development and community competitiveness.
