New Tools for Economic Development – Stitching Together Strategies in a Post-Redevelopment World

What do cities have left for economic development after the one-two punch in the gut of losing both Redevelopment Agencies and Enterprise Zones? How can local governments incentivize private investment, create jobs and help stabilize the tax base without these “power tools” in the shed?

The Los Angeles County Division, League of California Cities, and four renowned experts in California real estate, economic development and public policy explored how cities can use the tools and assets they may already have. The panel explored how you can use real estate, special districts, zoning, and existing tax and revenue streams to stitch together the economic development projects that can make a tangible difference to cities, services and constituents.
