UrbanPlan is ULI’s flagship education program. UrbanPlan engages participants in unfamiliar decision-making roles to address the fundamental challenges, complex trade-offs, and economics that are at play in land development. Join us for a fast-paced workshop for public officials to build their toolkit for understanding how public/private partnerships can make a positive impact on city-led projects.
IN TEAMS YOU AND FELLOW OFFICIALS WILL:
- Adopt roles on competing development teams responding to a mock city-issued RFP.
- Address conflicting business, community, and public sector needs and goals.
- Evaluate the economic risks and benefits of different land uses and building types.
- Develop a pro forma (financial model) for an economically sustainable development.
Prep work + One-Day Virtual Workshop
After individual advance prep work, teams assemble on the day of the virtual workshop to explore the trade-offs and risks at play in the development process, including financial and physical constraints, conflicting stakeholder interests, and the need for economic sustainability.
