“I recently had the privilege of attending a ULI UrbanPlan for Public Officials workshop which exposed the participants to what a community (all parties – developer, city council, neighborhoods, etc.) experience when a new real estate development project is planning to redevelop a district. The ULI experts which hosted the exercise were both knowledgeable and professional, and the materials used to facilitate the discussion were of high quality.
“I was most impressed with was that the exercise attempted to balance the perspective of all parties to the benefit of both the community and the developer. In my personal experience, as a former developer and planning & zoning commissioner and a current city council member, this is how it should work.”
– Joe R. Zimmerman, Mayor of the City of Sugar Land; May 4, 2017
