“Effective revitalization requires key elements, but must start with a clearly defined vision and strong leadership followed by a defined set of rules for the private sector to follow during development,” explained RMA Principal Kim Briesemeister. “During the ‘Market-Based Zoning and Implementing Redevelopment’ session, we will be exploring how North Miami Beach, Florida and Pompano Beach, Florida have successfully transformed their cities and attracted private development by using effective zoning and regulatory tools to achieve economic development in a way that protects community character while being responsive to private sector investment.”
During this session, Briesemeister will be joined by Kevin Crowder, CEcD, RMA Director of Economic Development; Greg Harrison, City Manager, Pompano Beach, FL; and Ana Garcia, City Manager, North Miami Beach, FL.
More than 3,500 key local government decision makers, exhibitors, and guests from cities, towns, counties, related entities and private-sector firms throughout the world will be attending this prestigious conference.
“We look forward to the opportunity of meeting with key government decision makers and providing them with the resources they need to successfully redevelop their communities,” said Briesemeister, who is the co-author of the book, “Reinventing Your City, 8 Steps to Turn Your City Around.”
RMA team members Kim Briesemeister, RMA Principal; Kevin Crowder, CEcD, RMA Director of Economic Development; Sharon McCormick, RMA Director of Business Attraction & Marketing; Sarah Blake, RMA Sr. Business Attraction & Marketing Manager; and Tracey Burghy, RMA Business Development Manager will be available to discuss ideas to make cities and counties flourish.
