Applied Innovation Corridor

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is a nonprofit education and research organization that fosters and encourages high standards of land use planning and development.  Established in 1936, ULI is recognized as one of North America's most respected and widely quoted sources of objective information on urban planning, growth, and development.  The members of this panel have been selected from the ULI membership for their expertise relevant to the problems and opportunities facing this project.  All panel members donate their time, effort, and expertise to the Advisory Services program as a personal contribution to further the Institute's work and objectives.

Purpose of the National Advisory Panel
The City of Charlotte will partner with a national panel of experts with the Urban Land Institute to identify key strategies needed to implement the Applied Innovation Corridor concept recommended in the Community Investment Plan and the 2020 Center City Vision Plan.  ULI will assist the City with engaging the community in a process to refine the vision for the corridor and develop key implementation strategies. 

Goals of Week-long Event
In a concentrated one-week effort beginning April 28, 2014, a national panel of six to eight experts, chosen and facilitated by ULI, will provide results and work with the City, community stakeholders, private developers, community development corporations, and many other organizations to address the challenging real estate and land use issues within the Applied Innovation Corridor.  A detailed report and actionable recommendations will be prepared and published following the week-long work session.
