The third FREE Lunch and Learn Summer Series session focused on City Approvals will be held at 12 p.m. on Monday, July 23 in room 301-B at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.
The series – about real estate development processes and procedures – is geared toward emerging developers in Milwaukee and was created by Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, Alderman Khalif J. Rainey and Alderman José G. Pérez.
All Lunch and Learn sessions are free and attendees should bring their own lunch. Please see the full schedule below and on the attached flyer.
Alderwoman Coggs, Alderman Rainey and Alderman Pérez – ACRE (Association of Commercial Real Estate) alumni – developed the concept for the series to allow those interested in development to explore current development opportunities and challenges. The sessions are free and open to the public and offer valuable insights into a variety of subjects that are critical to any developer working in the City of Milwaukee.
The Monday, July 23 session on City Approvals has several topics to be covered including approval processes, timelines, special zoning regulations and how to work with various departments in the permitting process. There will be special focus on Licensing (bars/taverns/restaurants), Health Department, Historic Districts/ARBS (Area Review Boards), City Plan Commission and BOZA (Board of Zoning Appeals).
Seating is limited and prospective attendees are encouraged to go to milwaukee.gov/LunchAndLearn to sign up.
