A handful of Kansas City leaders share development lessons learned in Dallas, where they attended the Urban Land Institute's fall conference.
"Developers know that they’re going to make use of this tool or tools elsewhere to get money, and who can blame them? If you’ve got a fiduciary responsibility to your shareholders, you go get the best deal you can. But I wish our city leaders would stop being suckers about who they give money to."
--Patrick Tuohey, The Show-Me Institute
The Urban Land Institute of Kansas City has selected its newest leader. David Brain, former CEO of EPR Properties and head of development firm Brown Cow Capital LLC, will take over as district council chair for a two-year term, effective July 1.
