Stop waiting for someone else to fix your city.
Have you ever looked at a building or empty lot in your neighborhood and said to yourself: "I wish someone would do _____ with that site"? That blank might be a new two story building to fill in a gap on Main Street... Retrofitting an existing one story on the corner that hasn't had a shop in it for a few years...The triple decker on the narrow residential street with lovely shade trees towering over the sidewalks. That someone could be you!
The Small Scale Developer Workshop is designed to help individuals in small towns or big cities learn how neighborhood scale real estate projects work, particularly buildings with 2-20 residential units and/or are 1-3 stories with a mix of uses. The course assumes you know a lot about your city or place, but not necessarily much about the industry or related fields. Through hands on applied learning, guidance from seasoned coaches and networking with local like-minded people, the workshop could be your first step to being a change maker in your community.
