We’re incredibly excited to announce the latest addition to our 2016 Member Webcast Series: Performing a Value Per Acre Analysis with Joshua McCarty at Urban3. Mark your calendars!

Member Webcast Series: Performing a Value Per Acre Analysis 

THURSDAY, MARCH 24TH 9-10:30 PDT / 12-1:30PM EDT

The value per acre analysis is featured prominently in the Curbside Chat. It is an incredibly effective way to visualize how traditional development patterns compare to auto-oriented suburbia. This tool has helped change the conversation in communities from coast to coast.

Joshua will provide an overview of the value per acre analysis, explain what goes into it and offer thoughts on how it can be utilized in the most impactful way. In addition, he will discuss some exciting projects he has been working on at Urban3 including work in Lafayette, LA and a new interactive model of Des Moines, IA.

These webcasts are available exclusively for members. If you’re not a member, sign up and we’ll send you the webcast link. If you’re a member but did not receive an invitation for the webinar in your inbox, please let me know and I’ll make sure you get it.
