Course Summary:

For cities across the United States, the 2000s have been a period of dramatic restoration, subsequently followed by the spectacular revelation of systemic failures. Urban metabolism from technology jobs and investment has been high, with the extraordinary revitalization of cities that were once hollowed out during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. However, in the current climate of a global pandemic and severe social unrest, it has become clear that our systems have failed large segments of our communities while those considered to be the “movers and shakers” are able to carry on without missing a beat.

For our communities to overcome these challenges, the public, private, and not-for-profit realms need to be engaged. The conventional model of public/private partnerships needs to be refocused from a transaction-oriented effort to a capacity-building model that recognizes the depth of financial strain plaguing the public sector and the subsequent impact this has on its ability to fully serve its constituents. 

Designed by a group of ULI members from the Public/Private Partnership Product Councils, and others who specialize in this arena, this webinar series illuminates how public/private partnerships can respond to systemic failures in housing, social needs, health care, transportation, food systems, education, and employment. Each webinar will be one hour long and consist of content delivery and audience Q&A.

This session will explore innovative means of funding and operating public infrastructure including buildings, utilities, roads, flood control, utilities, social infrastructure and internet capacity.
Many communities face immense challenges with the obsolescence of existing land uses including dead shopping malls, golf courses, auto plazas, urban sprawl, old industrial sites and old-style office buildings.  This session will explore innovative approaches to conversion and value creation repurposing strategies.
Access to education opportunities is currently limited due to historical barriers separating low income and minorities from higher income schools.  This greatly constrains access to quality employment and economic mobility. This session will explore measures to overcome these barriers and create greater opportunities for equal access to education and education that is appropriately linked to employment whether in neighborhoods or in downtown/suburban job centers.
Access to healthy food has been a noted problem for many years and there have been a variety of efforts to address “Food Deserts,” urban agriculture, healthy diet and exercise, and food pantries/depositories as alternative distribution methods.  Despite this, in the Pandemic access to food emerged as a critical issue with systemic failures.  In this webinar we will seek to understand the state of food distress in inner city communities and explore the roles of both the public and private sectors in ensuring access to healthy, quality food.
Low income communities are frequently located in the path of sea level rise and other dynamics of climate change.  The cost of increasing resilience of housing and other uses in these neighborhoods is a challenge that many communities are addressing.  This webinar will explore innovative mechanisms for addressing these challenges.
This webinar will explore initiatives for building citizen participation in influencing community outcomes.
