I encourage real estate developers no matter how small or large to attend this interactive session. Are you interested in renovating a home, taking on a duplex, or investing in a project, large or small, to enhance a neighborhood? If so, we encourage you to attend in order to provide the City feedback on providing additional educational workshops and bootcamps.”
