District Councils support best practices in land use through education programs, mentoring, networking events, project tours, policy work, and advisory services. By offering nonpartisan, unbiased expertise to community leaders, District Councils positively influence such issues as compact development, transportation, urban design and workforce housing. In 2013, ULI Colorado won ULI’s first “Impact Award” as the District Council (among 53 in North America) with the most positive influence on its community and membership.
With over 1,400 members, ULI Colorado is one of ULI’s largest District Councils. ULI Colorado engages its members to help them build their careers and participate in their community. In the past year alone, 12 ULI committees have attracted 250 volunteers and developed programs attended by thousands. Our Young Leaders Group (YLG) is over 250 strong with monthly educational and social programs. ULI Colorado’s executive committee is chaired by Tracy Huggins, Executive Director at the Denver Urban Renewal Authority. Our staff has headquarters in the Alliance Center in the heart of downtown Denver.
