Demonstration Corridors

The eight communities below involved in the ULI Healthy Corridors project are referred to as Demonstration Corridors. Each Demonstration Corridor demonstrates the value of strong cross-sector partnerships, thoughtful community engagement strategies, and the potential health impact on surrounding communities and vulnerable populations. After a competitive application process with ULI’s District Councils, each Demonstration Corridor formed a local leadership group, with experts in land use, real estate development, design, health, and community engagement. The local leadership groups help to shape the Healthy Corridors project at the local level for each corridor, including planning local workshops and participating in national forums.
