District Council Chair, ULI Chicago
The mission of the Urban Land Institute is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. ULI neither lobbies nor acts as an advocate for any single industry. ULI examines land use issues, impartially reports findings, and convenes forums to find solutions to complex land use problems, collaborating with industry and stakeholder groups worldwide. ULI advocates better land use planning, better growth patterns and better development to improve the overall quality of life in our communities.
ULI was founded on the basis of sharing mistakes made and lessons learned, and this culture of sharing remains in place to day. No other group offers members such a unique opportunity to learn from each other and exchange information on what works and what doesn’t.
Guiding our programming and decision-making, the Policy and Practice Focus Areas are broad and responsive to current land-use trends. Learn more about how ULI Chicago addresses these focus areas locally
