In July of 2020, The City of Charlotte through the
Bloomberg Philanthropies American Cities Climate Challenge engaged the
Urban Land Institute (ULI) to provide a
Technical Advisory Panel (TAP). This panel team focused on strategies to best envision the future of Charlotte as an equitable, low carbon, and resilient city, by formalizing the concept of a Resilient Innovation District, as highlighted in the
Strategic Energy Action Plan (SEAP), in partnership with the
Comprehensive Plan and
Unified Development Ordinance. As a next step, ULI will provide the City of Charlotte with a full report of findings from the TAP.
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.
