8:00-9:00 Registration, Breakfast & Networking

9:00-9:10 a.m. Welcome

9:10 Steven Pedigo, Director of the New York University Schack Institute of Real Estate Urban Lab and a clinical assistant professor of economic development at NYU.


The Case for Inclusive Prosperity: Why Real Estate Developers, Anchors, and Cities Must Work Together.  Today’s urban challenges require a new strategy centered on inclusive prosperity. For too long, economic development, real estate development and equity have been seen as separate entities.As the federal government retreats from urban development and turns its priorities away from cities, the onus of inclusive development has transferred to cities and urban areas themselves. Now more than ever, solving today’s community divides requires a broader, more encompassing strategy that includes affordable housing, better jobs, and innovation that enables all residents and neighborhoods to share in the benefits of the urban revival.


9:55 a.m. Joe Minicozzi, AICP, Principal of Urban3: Dollars and $ense: The Economics of Land Development Patterns

Joe is the principal of Urban3, LLC, a consulting company of downtown Asheville real estate developer Public Interest Projects. Prior to creating Urban3, he served as the Executive Director for the Asheville Downtown Association. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from University of Miami and Masters in Architecture and Urban Design from Harvard University.

Joe will present on the tie between economic productivity and community vitality through land use.  Land use economics is an effective tool to understand ways a community can proactively manage growth. However, few communities consider the important role that the value of land plays in land use planning, zoning, placemaking and capital improvement planning.


10:50 Break

11:15 a.m. Panel Discussion:
How to Achieve 
Smart Density and Overcome NIMBYISM


Moderated by Steven Pedigo, this panel consists of Joe Minicozzi, Principal of Urban3, Carlton Christensen, Director of Department of Regional Transportation, Housing and Economic Development, Salt Lake County Regional Development, and Cameron Diehl, Executive Director, Utah League of Cities and Towns.

1:00-2:00 p.m. Kenneth Perlman,
Principal at John Burns Real Estate Consulting


Kenneth has over fifteen years of experience in the real estate industry and has worked on projects throughout the United States.  Kenneth has directed the analyses of residential and commercial projects including master-planned communities, active adult housing, high-rise and urban projects, and commercial retail developments.  Kenneth began his career as a Residential Land Broker with Grubb & Ellis.  Later, he became the Vice President for The Sullivan Group Real Estate Advisors and then Senior Analyst for Hanley Wood Market Intelligence (formerly The Meyers Group).  Kenneth graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Urban Studies and Planning, and has a Master of Business Administration, both from the University of San Diego.
