Curious about UrbanPlan?



Get your answers during our HAPPY HOUR on Thursday, September 24th at 5:00 PM, as UrbanPlan aficionados guide attendees through a fast and fun team-based activity to introduce you to the UrbanPlan program. 


This is a great way to get to know other ULI members while getting a taste of the skills and concepts covered in an UrbanPlan workshop or volunteer training. 


From the creative challenge of balancing competing community demands while preserving your vision, to the financial challenge of maintaining economic viability while managing risk, to the marketing challenge of selling your plan to city council, there is no better way to get introduced to this exciting program.


UrbanPlan is a fun and interactive workshop in which teams compete to redevelop the fictional neighborhood of Elmwood.  UrbanPlan teaches participants how to:

  • Evaluate the economic benefits and risks of different land uses and building types
  • Use a financial model to create an economically sustainable development
  • Balance the conflicting needs and goals of community groups, the city and private investors. 

UrbanPlan is used around the country to empower citizens to engage effectively in land use decisions with their communities.
