How the EPA Clean Water Rules Impact Development; the significance of Waters of the U.S.
The Environmental Protection Agency and the US Army Corps of Engineers issue a rule under the Clean Water Act. In April of 2014, a draft definition of "Waters of the US" was released, and new Clean Water Rule was finalized August 28, 2015, but stayed in the jurisdiction of the 6th Circuit Court. Waters of the US under the new rule includes all tributaries of waters previously covered under the Clean Water Act as well as all waters adjacent to previously covered waters. Attend this discussion to find out what is and is not considered to be Waters of the US, as well as what this means for you as a developer. There will also be a discussion of how the new administration may change future rules related to the Clean Water Act.
Mr Holstead will explain what sections of the new rulings most impact developers. Because the EPA Rulings will impact building construction, he will point out items appraisers should consider when valuing property from both a new construction and replacement standpoint.Presentation Materials

Federal Lending Regulatory Changes
How they will Impact the Developer’s Capital Requirements and the price of real estate.
The difference between a High Volatility Commercial Real Estate (HVCRE) loan and a conventional Commercial Real Estate (CRE) loan currently plays a significant role in determining a developers required contributed capital. HVCRE loans and CRE loans also have different requirements when considering “As Completed” values vs “As Stabilized” values that will impact both loan covenants and valuations when the property is sold.
Ms. Cale will explain these ramifications of Dodd-Frank and how they are currently evolved as new rules come out on a monthly basis.No Presentation Materials Provided.

Business and Development Incentives in Former Indian Reservations in Oklahoma
Former Indian Reservations in Oklahoma are the Indian reservations in the lands that are now the state of Oklahoma. Prior to statehood, as a component of the policy of assimilation, the indian reservations in Oklahoma were dissolved, with land going either in to individual tribal members, sold to others, or placed in trust with the US Government. About 2/3 land area of Oklahoma, including a significant portion of Oklahoma County east of Indian Meridian Road, has been designated as Former Indian Reservations in Oklahoma. In the 1930’s the Federal Government reinstated tribal governments, and through the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, and amendments in 1997, most tax and other incentives found on traditional reservations were also made available to both indian and non-indians in Former Indian Reservations in Oklahoma.
With the opening of Eastern Oklahoma County by the turnpike extension, these tax and business incentives will become significant economic development tools. Shane will discuss business incentives available to anyone, not just those of Indian descent, who lives and works in the Former Indian Reservations.No Presentation Materials Provided.

Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism: The Past, the Present, & the Future
Preliminary results for research in new Design Concepts that may be used in Protecting our Communities. In recent times, there have been a series of significant terrorist events in major cities internationally. These attacks have resulted in substantial loss of life, property damage and financial loss, reputational damage and breaking down of societal relations. One of the primary targets of these attacks is crowded places/ commercial real estate developments (transportation hubs; hotels; entertainment venues; sporting arenas; restaurants; and other urban developments). As a consequence, new research is required on how best to protect such developments going forward.
The purpose of the research presented is threefold:
- It is designed to understand the current consideration of counter terrorism protective security in the real estate development process;
- It will ascertain the barriers to implementing counter terrorism measures; and
- It will identify how counter terrorism security measures could be introduced, including at what stage, in future significant real estate developments.
The impact and significance of this research is important for the informing of future protective security policy in the UK, US and Australia, as well as by architects, developers, and investors who are constructing new communities where people live, work and play. If trends continue, it is conceivable that these factors will impact the valuation of buildings.No Presentation Materials Provided.
Crowdfunding (as created by the JOBS Act)
In 2010, the Dodd-Frank transformed the US financial markets. By 2012 it was recognized that there needed to be some relief for equity capital and the “Jumpstart our Business Startups” (or JOBS Act, HR 3606) was passed and signed into law. The state purpose of the JOBS Act was: To Increase American Job Creation and Economic Growth by Improving Access to Capital Markets by Emerging Growth Companies. The concept of Crowd Funding was also introduced, and the SEC was charged with promulgating rules for the JOBS Act implementation. Among other things, we will be discussing rules for Crowdfunding that were published in February 2016.Presentation Materials
Overview of Form-Based Zoning Codes
Oklahoma City Planning Department is at the beginning of the process to review their Zoning Code, Sub-development Regulations, and Sign Code. One of the issues is that their long-term OKCPlan (finalized a few years ago) was developed around Form-Based concepts, while other parts of the code are more traditional. The goal of the review is to coordinate the OKCPlan more closely with the zoning codes, and reduce the need for the number of PUDs & S-PUDs that are currently being submitted to the OKC Planning Commission. Specifically, the application of Form-Based zoning codes will be considered for redevelopment areas.
In 2015 Mr. Day co-authored the Yukon Urban Gateway SmartCode, the first form-based code to be implemented in the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. He will provide a brief overview of Form-Based codes.
Where conventional zoning regulations based on separating uses into residential, office, commercial, and industrial categories, a form-based code addresses the relationships between building facades and the public realms the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks. Where form-based codes have been implemented (ex. Cincinnati) they have seen a more predictable use of the zoning codes and far less PUD and S-PUDS when trying to repurpose properties into a Live, Work and Play environment.No Presentation Materials Provided.
