Orange County 2012 Redevelopment Conference

The Planning Division has begun preparations for the Orange County 2012 Redevelopment Conference, which will present expert advice on infill and redevelopment. The conference will be held on January 20, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center. Sessions will include information about the benefits and challenges of infill and redevelopment, available financial mechanisms, and the County’s efforts in bringing mixed-use development and redevelopment concepts to life. The conference aims to increase public understanding of the process and methods used to achieve sound redevelopment and might be of interest to the members of the development community, financial institutions, and others involved in community development.
