One of the more common challenges real estate developers face is opponents who make up slurs and spread misinformation about their proposed projects. Often, there is concern that the opponents’ shenanigans will affect the project’s chances at getting approval at an upcoming public hearing. There are effective actions developers can take. These actions are outlined in detail in a free webinar offered by Katie Coates.

Katie Coates, consultant and author of a new book for real estate developers, “Yes Vote: The Public Hearing Plan for Developers,” answers the question many project managers ask: How does a real esate developer overcome project opposition? She has worked with developers for more than 20 years and has helped clients get approval at dozens of public hearings at the city coucil and planning commission levels as well as at regional and state agencies

“In working with clients to get a Yes Vote at their public hearings, I’ve heard it all,” Katie says, “Project opponents say the project will cause brain cancer to the entire quadrant of the city it’s planned for, destroy the historic area, or clog streets with so much traffic the city will be unlivable.”

She also says that the opponents will make slurs against the developers themselves. They say the developer is a “carpetbagger” who is “just in it for the money” and they don’t care about the community, the outcome, or the consequences.

Katie helps her clients achieve success by finding supporters, overcoming opposition, and communicating with the decision makers. Concrete, actionable steps will be covered in the webinar, offered through eventbrite.
