In a new report by Enterprise Community Partners, Public Benefit from Publicly Owned Parcels: Effective Practices in Affordable Housing Development, Michael Spotts, Ahmad Abu-Khalaf, and Genevieve Hale-Case describe best practices for public entities seeking to use publicly owned land for affordable housing development. The authors focus on ways to improve the efficiency of the solicitation process—the process in which public entities seek proposals from the private sector to develop publicly-owned land. According to the report, efficiency is the key to achieving the goals of both the public agency and developer. The report provides best practices for public agencies, taking into consideration a variety of agency goals, agency capacities, and property types.
