ICSC Creates Infrastructure Task Force

Elliot Feuerstein

A longtime real estate development leader in San Diego, CA, Elliot Feuerstein draws upon more than four decades of experience in his role as an officer of the Mira Mesa Shopping Center. An active member of the field, Elliot Feuerstein belongs to professional groups and organizations such as the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).

Founded in 1957, ICSC has expanded over the years to include more than 70,000 members around the world. Today, ICSC stands as the leading professional organization for the shopping center industry, serving its members through a combination of networking events, industry research, and professional development opportunities. Additionally, ICSC stands as the unified voice for the industry on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures.
ICSC has a long history of advocating for policy reform at the state and national level, with previous efforts leading to important legislation related to taxes, online retailers, and disability lawsuits. One of its most recent initiatives involves the relationship between shopping centers and infrastructure.
ICSC recognizes the strong connection between public infrastructure and shopping centers and retail development. Shopping centers and retailers rely on public roads, energy grids, and water systems, and developers often take the initiative to upgrade local systems for the benefit of the entire community. Too frequently, however, the burden of upgrading these systems falls to retail developers.
As such, ICSC has established an infrastructure task force to identify potential public-private partnership opportunities for infrastructure upgrades while developing a larger communication and public education strategy. Ultimately, the goal is to work with federal legislators to ease regulatory burdens and streamline infrastructure-related projects.
