Event Description
The St. Louis Promise Zone and Urban Land Insititute of St. Louis have come together to provide an opportunity which provide elected and appointed officals, and those who are responsible for economic development in their communities, a chance to come together for a deeper understanding of the process for equitable economic development. Through a one-day workshop, participants work as competing development teams to respond to a hypothetical request for proposal (RFP) for the redevelopment of a site in the fictitious town of Yorktown. Teams work together, using blocks to represent different building types and a financial analysis tool, to create a feasible proposal that meets the RFP’s objectives, the community’s interests, and the investor’s bottom line. ULI members serve as facilitators challenging the conceptual proposal, act as a selection committee to review the final proposals, and present a case study to spur discussion and analysis.
