Small Developer Training

The Small Developer Training, recorded at a live program by Zoom on June 15, 2021, helps walk those who are interested in becoming small developers through the many steps of the process, including how to access Land Bank inventory, what an option is, how to understand zoning, how to establish a team, determining what properties best fit your vision, and how to do environmentals on the property–plus so much more! Together with a lawyer from Warner Norcross + Judd LLP, representatives from Kalamazoo County and other municipalities, and LISC Kalamazoo, the Land Bank offers this training as an introduction for all potential small developers. If you have further questions about your project, please contact the Senior Operations Manager at (269) 762-6191.
