BENEFITING: ULI FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jan 11, 2013
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
ULI has a long history of providing community rebuilding assistance through our Advisory Services Panel program, which includes strategic guidance to communities hit by natural and man-made disasters. These advisory efforts have assisted numerous urban areas in crisis, including New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina; Lower Manhattan after 9-11; Cedar Rapids, Iowa following flooding; and Minneapolis after a major bridge collapse.
With your support, ULI aims to conduct a similar effort in New York City, and in communities in New Jersey and Connecticut at the appropriate time, when the focus shifts from relief and recovery to long-term rebuilding. This process will take many years and a rock-solid public-private commitment that can withstand changes in political office, as well as economic, social and cultural shifts.
In addition to efforts on the ground, ULI is scheduled to host a CLUE Forum: Risk and Resilience in Coastal Regions. The Forum will explore how recent storm events and environmental trends present new challenges to communities and real estate markets. Your contribution will support this leadership dialogue and inform future research and programs across ULI councils and networks.
