This course is held in partnership with Minnesota Economic Development Foundation and in conjunction with Real Estate Development and Reuse on September 22-23. Register for both, and save on travel costs!

This practitioner-driven course uses the case study method to complement current neighborhood development theory. Participants will learn how to identify the major neighborhood actors, their objectives, and strategies for redevelopment, in addition to understanding the process for creating a strategic economic development plan to meet the neighborhood development goals. Specifically, this course will examine social capital (e.g., linkages, networks, talent, etc.), environmental capital (e.g., stewardship, residual management, etc.) and economic capital (e.g., investment and reinvestment) facing distressed neighborhoods and offer solutions to address local needs.

Course Highlights:

  • Asset creation, wealth creation, and enterprise development & expansion
  • Housing development, real estate speculation, and tax-base stabilization
  • Public and private sector role in combating inner city unemployment
  • Examining historical and current neighborhood trends
  • Performing leakage assessments and gap analyses
  • Aligning strategic plans for multiple neighborhood groups
  • Understanding the underserved needs for banking and grocery
  • Working with media to share success stories
