2018 APA Florida Circuit Rider Series with Joe Minicozzi

Joseph Minicozzi, AICP, is the principal of Urban3, LLC, a consulting company in downtown Asheville, a real estate developer and served as the Executive Director for the Asheville Downtown Association. Joe’s cross-training in city planning in the public and private sectors, as well as private sector real estate finance, has allowed him to develop award-winning analytic tools that have garnered national attention.

Land use economics is an effective tool to proactively manage growth. It is also a fiscally smart way to use land more wisely. However, few communities consider the important role that the value of land plays in land use planning, zoning, placemaking and capital improvement planning. Joe will lead the presentation and guide participants to gain a better understanding of the tie between economic productivity and community vitality through land use.

These events are ideal not only for planners but any professional developers, realtors, local government officials, economic development agencies, planning board members, land-use advisers.

The events will start with a 45 minute presentation by Joe followed by a 15 minute audience Q&A.  In some locations, this will be followed by a two hour interactive “deep dive” discussion on local issues and concerns.  You are free to attend just the initial presentation or stay for the whole event, depending on your schedule and interest.
