What will you learn by taking the Mastering Philly’s New Real Estate Development Social Impact Disclosure Seminar?

  • You’ll understand how the new Project Information Form ordinance works from the bill’s principal drafter, Steve Masters, David Feldman, a leader of the Developers’ community who helped shape the legislation and Marty Gregorski, the government official charged with implementing the legislation.
  • You’ll get tips for how your business can use Project Information Forms to build political and community support.
  • You’ll learn how to use the Project Information Form as the centerpiece of an effective community engagement strategy

What’s the Project Information Form ordinance?

  • On June 6, 2017, Mayor Kenney signed Ordinance 170335-A which creates a powerful new community engagement tool around real estate development.
  • This ordinance, drafted by JustLaws on behalf of Councilwoman Cherelle Parker, requires developers to complete a Project Information Form to reveal how development projects will affect the surrounding community.
  • The City of Philadelphia began to require project information forms for virtually every development project that requires Zoning Board or City Council approval starting in late April 2018.
