ULI San Francisco: Leadership Sunnyvale UrbanPlan for Communities Workshop

When

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019
9:00am - 4:00pm PDT
Engaging Local Decision Makers in a Dialogue about Land Use Dynamics
ULI San Francisco's UrbanPlan for Communities Workshop will engage community members from Leadership Sunnyvale in learning about the fundamental forces and processes that shape and affect the built environment and the important leadership roles that public officials as well as community members play in the real estate development process.
 
Workshop as a Living Case Study
Participants will work as competing development teams to respond to a hypothetical request for proposal (RFP) for the redevelopment of a site in the fictional Town of Yorktown’s blighted Elmwood neighborhood. Teams work together, using blocks to represent different building types and a financial analysis tool, to create a redevelopment proposal that meets the RFP’s objectives, the community’s interests, and the investor’s bottom line. Trained ULI members serve as facilitators challenging the conceptual proposal assumptions and decisions and act as a selection committee to review the final proposals. A case study is also presented to spur discussion and analysis.
