Staff from the Redevelopment Authority and Local Elected officials will welcome everyone. Gold Sponsors will be given an opportunity to speak, followed with additional thanks to all other sponsors.
Codes enforcement officials and municipal officials will discuss their challenges with blight, the plans for encouraging redevelopment of underutilized properties, and the tools municipal governments utilize to help bring properties into compliance.
Real Estate Redevelopment can be large redevelopment of brown fields, reuse of major office buildings or the conversion of a blighted single-family home. Whatever the size of the project, redevelopment and reinvestment increases the vibrancy of a community. Hear from developers on their challenges, opportunities, and various project scales, as they share why redevelopment is vital to Cumberland County and the region.
F&M will provide an economic update and share how their investment in major Carlisle Redevelopment projects has benefits the community.
Not all downtowns are the same. Not all redevelopment projects have the same unique characteristics. Learn how two developers with different footprints utilized their strengths and the strengths of their downtown to create a new sense of place and downtown destination.
Redevelopment is often portrayed as brownfields and downtowns, but Cumberland County has seen significant redevelopment in major suburban commercial corridors. Hear from real estate experts and developers how they transformed underutilized properties into thriving commercial centers.
How do you finance redevelopment? Traditional financing for unique redevelopment projects can be challenging. Through a variety of public financing options, projects are not constricted by the constraints of traditional financing or limited availability of grant funds. Legal experts and professional underwriters will come together to share their experiences and offer up ideas to make your future project achievable.
“I really wanted a grant, not a loan.” Well, you came to the right place. Professional grant writers, state agency staff, and county agency staff will come together to discuss grant funding and its role in redevelopment. Understand what grants are available and the funding priorities public entities are prioritizing.
