UrbanPlan for Public Officials workshops are ideal for local decision makers who would like to learn more about the fundamental forces that shape and affect the built environment and the important leadership roles that elected and appointed officials play in the real estate development process.
ULI offers the one-day workshop in the following venues and formats:
- At the annual ULI Fall Meeting and at the National League of Cities’ two annual conferences,
- With local, ULI District Councils who facilitate the program for local and regional audiences, and
- Directly to local jurisdictions as one-off workshops for a small fee. (Ie., as a retreat for elected officials, or as a team-building exercise for senior decision-making staff.)
Leverage Public/Private Partnerships
The workshop will enable public officials to better understand the trade-offs and risk at play in the entitlement and negotiation process associated with land use, especially in public/private partnerships (P3s). The UrbanPlan case study is an example of a city-led redevelopment effort where compromise needs to be met between the locality, development team selected in the RFP, and the community.
Join an UrbanPlan for Public Officials workshop and learn the tools needed to make your community successful.

WHAT PUBLIC OFFICIALS SAY ABOUT URBANPLAN for PUBLIC OFFICIALS
“UrbanPlan for Public Officials exposes you to what a community experiences when a development project is planned. The exercise demonstrates how to balance the perspective of all parties to the benefit of both the community and the developer. This is how it should work.”
“I was invited to take part in the inaugural class of ULI Boston’s UrbanPlan Public Leadership Institute. Through UrbanPlan, I came to better understand that being a developer requires a long-term perspective; it involves taking into consideration the needs of different stakeholders while measuring risk.”
“UrbanPlan is an opportunity to gain new perspective on the development process. It’s particularly useful to get a view of the fiscal constraints that developers face when trying to accommodate communities. You learn how to balance getting what you can from a developer but not pushing them too hard, so everyone wins.”
