Location Name
East O

This session will feature a panel of Main Street managers and partners who have bought, developed, own, and manage properties in their own districts. The panel will walk Main Street managers through fundamental steps for launching your own development projects and common challenges to avoid. Basics of real estate financing for non-profits will also be discussed. The benefits of owning and managing a property in your district will be explored, including organizational financial sustainability, and filling specific use needs that your market is not delivering. Our panelists will share specific examples from their own real estate projects to illustrate their learnings and insights and audience members will have time for Q&A at the end of the panel.
