Celebrating Success of Advisory Services report cover
Report Summary:

Of all the Urban Land Institute’s many offerings, perhaps the one that best delivers an ideal combination of member value and mission advancement is the Advisory Services program.

This report contains 10 profiles of panels that took place between 2015 and 2019, covering topics ranging from improving urban resilience in Miami, to expanding park space in Detroit, to enhancing the economic competitiveness of Durban, South Africa. In several cases, implementation of at least some of the panel recommendations is underway, demonstrating the power of Advisory Services to make a difference locally and globally.

ULI is deeply grateful to the panel sponsors, partner organizations, and hundreds of community stakeholders whose ideas, concerns, and insights helped inform the challenges outlined in the panel assignments. Special thanks are owed to the more than 150 panelists (identified in this report by the company titles/positions they held when the panels took place) who readily volunteered their time and expertise to deliver practical recommendations to ensure the best outcomes for communities.

With so many factors affecting how our cities grow— demographic and population shifts, new economic drivers, technology advancements, environmental concerns, and infrastructure needs, to name a few— the advice offered by the Advisory Services program has never been more necessary.
