Now in its second year, the series – centered on providing knowledge of the permitting processes of the City of Milwaukee – is geared toward emerging developers in Milwaukee.
Today’s July 29 session on City Financing has several topics to be covered including RACM (Redevelopment Authority) and Brownfield funds, commercial corridor and façade grants, and NIDC (Neighborhood Improvement Development Corp.).
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 Khalif J. Rainey and Alderman José G. 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.
Seating is limited and prospective attendees are encouraged to go to milwaukee.gov/LunchAndLearn to sign up.
