Planning for Opportunity Zone Investments

Hosted by National Association of Realtors

The focus of the discussion would be how the REALTOR® community can engage in efforts to ensure OZs are properly planned, implemented and ultimately beneficial for all members in the community. This is meant to be a session where members, state or local REALTOR® association staff, or outside guests can walk away with an understanding of what to focus on such as land use plans, zoning modifications, infrastructure, public private partnerships, etc.


  • Christopher Coes, Vice President, Land Use and Development at Smart Growth America
  • Bruce Katz, Founding Director, Nowak Metro Finance Lab at Drexel University

This session is a part of the larger National Association of Realtors Legislative Conference but is open to the public in partnership with Infrastructure Week. Registration information for non-conference attendees will be available shortly.
