Economic and Community Development Advisement

Economic and Community Development Advisement

For close to a decade, Landair Project Resources affiliate firm, LPR/Urban Initiatives, has worked with communities and non-profit organizations to strengthen economic, community development and cultural links. LRP/Urban Initiatives provides a comprehensive approach to public policy and program initiatives and program management in the areas of affordable housing, community and cultural economic development. Our work in communications and community relations can support this process.

We work with public bodies to evaluate sites, districts and campuses, identify initiatives and incentives for urban revitalization, such as the feasibility of a successful cultural district. LPR/Urban Initiatives prepares market surveys for proposed special districts or developments, creates site selection criteria and/or district charting, and conducts site selection.
We help establish action plans, prepare project summaries, financing packages (conventional/non-conventional financing including tax credits, tax-exempt bonds, public and private sources), fundraising campaign plans and cost estimates in support of these.
