Date: May 3, 2019

Time: 11:30AM - 12:45PM

Location: Hyatt Regency Newport Beach

Jon Welner will be speaking on a panel entitled "The Wages of Subsidy: When are Prevailing Wages Required in Publicly Assisted Development Projects?" 
 
Before accepting help from a public agency for a development project, developers need to know if a prevailing wage requirement is the price to be paid for that assistance. This panel will discuss how prevailing wage requirements pertain to government land sales and leases, Mello-Roos and other financing districts, projects in charter cities, affordable housing projects, and other common forms of public assistance. We will examine commonly used exemptions from the prevailing wage requirements, and the ways that government assistance is structured to eliminate or lessen those obligations.
