The Ohio Properties Redevelopment Institute

April 3, 2012 thru Apr 4

Hyatt Regency350 N. High Street
Columbus, Ohio

This two-day interactive training and policy solutions workshop will gather local leaders from municipalities, nonprofit community development organizations and the private sector from across the state and offer hands-on techniques and strategies for addressing vacant and abandoned property development challenges and generating redevelopment opportunities.

Featuring local practitioners, financial institutions, and state and national level redevelopment experts, the sessions will include: acquisition tools, land banks, neighborhood stabilization tactics, revitalization strategies, property information systems,  and urban redevelopment successes. The Institute will also provide opportunity for input into policy reforms that arm local leaders with new tools and align policies with local community development needs. With Ohio’s cities and towns at a crisis point, the Institute’s goals—training and education, coalition-building and policy advancement—are vital to productively reshape Ohio’s communities.
