ULI Colorado invites you to this forum for land-use professionals to learn about issues and candidates in Denver’s May 2019 primary election.

Please join us to “Meet the Candidates” to hear their positions and ask questions on core topics and issues influencing land use, and anticipated ballot measures.

With a number of candidates in the running against incumbent Mayor Michael Hancock, this is your chance to hear their perspectives on transportation, housing, diversity and inclusion, and sustainable development, among other topics.

Though this program may include controversy, the forum will remain neutral and educational, lending itself to thoughtful conversation from diverse perspectives. ULI Colorado is nonpartisan and will not endorse a candidate. Here’s your chance to learn and to make an informed decision.


Candidates participating in the dialogue include: Mayor Michael Hancock, Jamie Giellis, Penfield Tate, and Lisa Calderon.

Thank you to each of the participating candidates!


For media inquiries, please contact colorado@uli.org.

Continuing education credits will not be provided for this program.

Included with your registration is a networking reception. Please note that ULI Colorado has made an effort to keep fees as low as possible; all fees go directly to support program costs.
