Building Healthy Places Workshops
With funding from the Colorado Health Foundation of $30,000 to the Colorado District Council of ULI (ULI Colorado), ULI Colorado has hosted four Building Healthy Places (BHP) workshops over the past several years 2016.
The workshops bring together 8-to-10 ULI volunteer experts with community leaders and other stakeholders to envision new designs, developments and infrastructure that will benefit community health.
In one-day exercises, these workshops study the selected communities and provide observations, findings, recommendations, and suggest practical first and next steps in retrofitting or designing the built environment to enhance community health and wellness.
In partnership with the Colorado Health Foundation, ULI has become a leader in best practices to create healthy and sustainable places—communities where all residents can enjoy active lifestyles, access to healthy food, clean air and water, green space and natural systems, and a safe community supporting physical and mental health.

ULI Colorado has also done significant work on the Federal Boulevard Corridor through ULI’s Building Healthy Corridors Initiative.
After hosting a national panel for their perspectives and convening numerous local stakeholders to better understand their points of view, ULI Colorado made recommendations to help transform this 2.5 mile corridor into a more healthy place for residents and visitors. View our presentation here:

We followed up with a Developer Forum to stimulate interest among local and regional developers that might have an interest in helping to bring investment to this corridor.
