LAST DAY TO REGISTER MAY 2ND
WHAT IS URBAN PLAN?
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.
WHY URBAN PLAN FOR THE PUBLIC SECTOR?
UrbanPlan is an opportunity for the public sector and elected officials to build their toolkit for understanding how public/private partnerships can make a positive impact on city-led projects.
Six (6) AICP CEU Credits are available for those completing the program.
Comments from past participants:
“As a City Official who has worked in economic development for my career, this was an incredible introduction into the developer mindset and the choices the developer needs to make when trying to meet city objectives.”
“As a Planning Commissioner, this workshop helped me better understand the role and concerns of the private sector, including the risks a developer might have assessed in putting together their project proposal. It has strengthened my resolve to ask more questions in order to publicly shed light on those risks balanced against community needs and interests.”
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.
Covid Protocol: This workshop will be held at the start-of-the-art CoreTrust Workplace Innovation Lab. We follow the CDC and County of LA guidelines and continue to monitor the situation and if there are changes, we will reassess. There is an open-air lounge with fresh airflow on the 6th floor where the workshop is taking place, a temperature reader at the entrance, and participants may make the personal choice to wear masks throughout the workshop. Please know that we will revert to a virtual workshop on the same date if necessary.
