Candid Conversations

      Candid, small group discussions about development with regional leaders
Designed to provide ULI members with invaluable and quality face-to-face time with community leaders in St. Louis, Candid Conversations programs dig deeper into issues affecting our region. The meetings are held in the morning, are limited in attendance and provide an informal setting for lively discussion.

Technical Assistance Panels

        Participate in one-day worksessions tackling a particular development challenge
The Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) partners with area governments, agencies and non-profits to further ULI’s mission of leadership in responsible land use. The TAP program offers the expertise of local ULI members to local governments and nonprofit entities to address specific project feasibility or implementation issues through one or two day panels.

UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging, and academically challenging classroom-based, project-based program in which students learn the roles, issues, trade-offs, and economics involved in urban development. It provides high school students – our future voters, neighbors, community leaders, public officials, and land use professionals – with a hands-on experience in developing realistic land use solutions to vexing urban growth challenges.
