Small Scale Development Workshop Nov. 15 , 2017


On November 15, the City of Decatur and Decatur Development Authority will host a Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop.  Get a big picture view of small scale real estate development.  The Workshop offers specialized training about how to create small projects, like 1-3 story buildings with less than 20 units, which are residential, commercial or mixed use. The Workshop is a day-long session designed to introduce the principles and implementation mechanisms behind neighborhood based development projects.  The course assumes you know a lot about where you live, but not necessarily much about the real estate process or building development. Discover where you need help and meet the people who can help you. Through presentations on finance, design and site selection, a hands-on practice exercise, and networking with local like-minded people, this workshop is the first step to becoming a small developer yourself or creating a supportive ecosystem for small development in your city.
WHAT: Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop
WHEN: Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m.
WHERE: Courtyard by Marriott, 130 Clairemont AvenueDecatur, GA, 30030

In conjunction with the celebration of the accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen, the weekend will also place a focus on the accomplishments of all African-American pilots from WWII to the present.

The Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing will assemble at Dekalb-Peachtree Airportall the type of airplanes flown by the Tuskegee Airmen. Along with other famous aircraft such as a FG-1D Corsair, SBD-5 Dauntless dive bomber, T-6 Texan, C-46, Stearman bi-planes, Douglas DC-3 and after four years a B-17 Flying Fortress will offer rides and cockpit tours.

Meet WWII Veterans and noted authors, attend a WWII 8th Air Force Fighter Mission Briefing, enjoy 1940’s Hollywood entertainers, visit with WWII reenactors, participate in a photography workshop and attend a dinner symposium with the original Tuskegee Airmen at the 57th Fighter Group restaurant on Saturday evening.
