Understand 10 best practices to use in structuring a public-private development program.

Community development and redevelopment often require partnerships between the private sector and the government to help realize key public objectives. Important projects are stymied by the reduced federal role and the constraints on state and local government resources. It is critical that the public and private sectors are actively engaged to help redevelop brownfields and obsolete buildings, and complete the historic rehabilitation of local icons. Creating vibrant town centers and transit-oriented developments often call for land acquisition and infrastructure assistance by the public sector to leverage private investment. Some key financing tools that make deals work include Tax Increment Financing and New Markets Tax Credits as well as Historic Tax Credits and Low Income Housing Tax Credits. Best practices for public-private partnerships involve working together to use these tools in the context of agreed goals. In this material, we will: introduce the 10 best practices; explore techniques for creating shared visions; assess how the public sector can help achieve site readiness/address environmental and other extraordinary costs to support feasible and high-quality development; overcome obstacles to complex projects; establish workable business relationships between the public and private sectors, ensuring that the deal is fair to both parties; structure public tools and private financing to manage risk; and share in the success of projects.
