In May 2019, DHCD presented a Small-scale Real Estate Development Workshop in Staunton, Virginia. This training sold out and 30 participants went on to complete the Small Scale Real Estate Developer Boot Camp. From there, five participants were accepted into a cohort for project specific technical assistance – including one in the city of Danville. The city of Danville was so excited and impressed with the first round of training that they are hosting a workshop on Oct. 30, 2019!
Workshops on small-scale real estate development take a big picture view of neighborhood-based development to help attendees analyze what makes a good project, how a building makes money and how small developers interact with the broader ecosystem of professionals in the built environment.
This workshop is designed for:
- Individuals in construction, design, planning or real estate looking to either enhance their current practice or make career transition.
- Volunteers or professionals in business associations, main streets associations, historic preservation groups and neighborhood improvement groups looking to champion incremental development in their communities.
- Public-sector professionals in city management, economic development, planning and related agencies who are looking to make it easier for small development projects to occur in their town.
- Professionals in non-profit development organizations, churches and community development or housing development organizations who need new strategies for small lot development.
- Private banking professionals specializing in mortgages, commercial real estate loans or SBA loans and professionals as at Community Development Financial Institutions and community foundations who want to become more effective investors.
Early registration is $169 and ends Oct. 4, 2019. For more information, visit https://www.incrementaldevelopment.org/events/danville.
