ULI creates Center for Public Leadership in Land Use
The Washington-based Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use soon will provide information, best practices, peer networks and other resources to help government leaders implement creative and efficient sustainable land use policies. The center will administer a fellowship program, organize workshops on sustainable development and undertake experiential and peer-to-peer learning programs for local officials.
Last week, Rose, chairman of New York-based Rose Associates, donated $5 million for the creation of the new center. The center’s guiding principles will include regional leadership, integrated problem solving and promoting public/private collaboration. “I have high hopes for the potential of the ULI Daniel Rose Center to attract public leaders who will apply this learning experience to create communities that are more livable, and, as a result, more sustainable,” said ULI Chairman Todd Mansfield in a statement.
