You don't have to be a member to attend!

Don't think you can build affordable housing in NWA? There is a group of investors, non-profits, builder/developers and community leaders who have done just that - and gotten it approved!

It's a small parcel - around 13 acres and has incorporated several multi-use features. Designed to emphasize green space, water features and community gardens, it is one example of what we may all be building in the future.

Project managers will present discuss how it happened, including:

  • Overview of the plan
  • How the joint venture came together
  • Ownership considerations
  • Determining the mix: multi-family, commercial, green space
  • Permit process
  • Timeline for completion
Jim Petty is President and CEO of Strategic Realty Companies, a group of businesses dedicated to developing and underwriting housing projects throughout AR and OK. Jim has worn many hats: a CPA still licensed in AR, former owner of a construction company and a member of the Van Buren City Council.

Join us and see what can be done with 13 acres in NWA. Learn how
one builder/developer put together a community housing project
geared to the "Affordable" market. Take a look at this new model
of community development and pick the brain of the man who
made it happen.

We love to hear from new people as well as our members.

Let us know what's on your mind or what you'd like to see at REI NWA.
