Reinvesting in the Region – Redevelopment-Ready Guide

Urban Land Institute Minnesota

The Urban Land Institute Minnesota (ULI MN) recently released a new local government tool called Reinvesting in the Region - (Re)Development-Ready Guide. The guide provides suggested land use and development policies and strategies to position cities to effectively attract investment, grow jobs, and build the tax base for the well-being of the region.

Based on best practices, the (Re)Development-Ready Guide outlines a proactive approach to development by providing clarity, transparency, collaboration and efficiency to support thriving, sustainable communities essential to remaining competitive in a new economy, with a particular emphasis on partnering with the private sector. The guide was prepared as part of the Reinvesting in the Region action plan with input from the ULI MN/RCM Connecting Transportation and Land Use Systems and Housing Initiative Advisory Committees and in partnership with the Regional Council of Mayors and their city staff.
