UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging exercise in which participants—high school students, university students, or public officials—learn about the fundamental forces that affect real estate development in our communities. Participants experience the challenging issues, private and public sector roles, complex trade-offs, and fundamental economics in play when proposing realistic land use solutions to vexing growth challenges.

ULI volunteers are the backbone of UrbanPlan, offering guidance to students throughout the project as facilitators and mock city council members. With the financial support of the Annual Fund and the ULI District Councils, ULI underwrites UrbanPlan at no cost to school systems.
