Behind every development project is a financial analysis and projection called a pro forma. While
developers prepare the pro forma, it’s a crucial tool for planners, too. It tells what developers can and
cannot afford to do, and what assistance they may seek. This course examines key elements of pro
formas and reviews the analysis to check the assumptions. Find out what investment returns are
appropriate and see when you might need outside help to level the playing field between the locality
and the developer.
