Here’s another session sneak peek?
Post Redevelopment Capital Programming, Forging Public-Private Partnerships, and Local Economic Development —
in this post RDA world, paradigm shifts must occur to fit large capital expectations into smaller capital budgets. How can projects be prioritized and monitored to maximize limited financial resources?
The city of Santa Monica will address how it re-engineered the CIP process to provide for prioritization of projects competing for reduced funding levels, greater accountability for outcome, and responsibility for project implementation.
The city of Sacramento’s discussion will focus on the benefits of building public-private partnerships by delving into “layered” financing methods, and how the incentives of private partners can be aligned with public agencies.
The city of Oakland will discuss ways to crowdfund economic development and job growth through an Internet microfinance platform, connecting citizen lenders to microentrepreneurs, offer new ways to think about public-private partnerships, and highlight different ways cities can engage technology platforms to increase their impact in an era of limited financial resources.
