For over a year, MEREDA’s Local Issues Committee has been hard at work crafting this exciting and invaluable tool for MEREDA members. Designed to help developers of all sizes and levels of experience, the Developer’s Toolkit is a first-of-its-kind modular document that covers all public-facing aspects of a development project, including: project scoping, municipal approval processes, public communications and media relations. In addition to general advice and MEREDA Pro Tips, the Developer’s Toolkit includes examples and templates to help developers jump-start the pre-development strategic planning process and guide developers through the project approval process.
MEREDA is pleased to offer its Developer’s Toolkit, available for download, to non-MEREDA members. This invaluable resource would normally be a members-only tool. However, in recognition of these challenging times, MEREDA offers this resource in the hopes that it can help any Maine developer – big or small – to successfully bring new projects to our communities and support a healthy Maine economy.
The Developer’s Toolkit is an example of the kinds of resources, guidance, and programming that MEREDA offers its members. To fully realize what MEREDA has to offer, consider becoming a member. Membership levels and an application are available here.
