Earlier today, Susan and I met with members of the Implementation Subcommittee to discuss early steps that will help launch development in River Terrace.  The conversation covered “lessons learned” in the North Bethany and Villebois projects, and different approaches that have been used to finance early-stage development on greenfield sites.  We talked about balancing the need  for certainty with a desire for flexibility (which will increase the area’s development potential), and the importance of moving quickly to ensure that development begins during the current upswing in the economic cycle for new housing.  The subcommittee will meet again on December 18.  All SWG members are welcome to attend.
