A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the UrbanPlan for Public Officials Workshops
For ULI Members – be a part of our newly developing UrbanPlan team. Participate in a volunteer training day, then help us deliver UrbanPlan to those serving in public official/agency roles to help better understand the complex world of development – during our UrbanPlan for Public Officials one day workshop.
The UrbanPlan Workshop is ideal for decision makers who would like to learn more about the fundamental forces that shape the real estate development process. Working with its District Councils, the Urban Land Institute aims to engage the community in an interactive dialogue about the challenging issues, varying private and public sector roles, complex tradeoffs, and economics that are at play in land use in communities across the country.
