There’s a “math” to effective city building. Architect, developer, and urban planner Joe Minicozzi understands it better than most, helping communities identify where income is generated — via property taxes or some combination of use taxes — and what development patterns create the most valuable and resilient revenue sources.

Minicozzi, principal of the Asheville, North Carolina, consulting company Urban3, discusses the financial implications of land use decisions in cities like Kansas City.

The event is part of the Making a Great City series, designed to advance realistic solutions to our country’s infrastructure crisis and point Kansas City, specifically, toward being great, more productive city. It is co-presented by the planning and design studio of Gould Evans, Greater Kansas City LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation), the local council of the Urban Land Institute, the Mid-America Regional Council, Newmark Grubb Zimmer, and the National Association of Realtors.

This event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you RSVP so we have enough seating for everyone. RSVP here.
