ULI Colorado’s TOD Best Practices Committee presents Part 1 of 3 Part “Shifting Suburbs” Series:  A New Framework for Compact Development. 

We apologize for any inconveince, but this event is completely SOLD OUT.  Thank you!

For the past two decades, suburban areas have been making a slow transition from car-dependent to people-oriented design, with more options for walking, cycling or public transportation.  But many challenges remain to transforming suburbs from auto-dependent, single-use environments into thriving, walkable, mixed-use places.

Come learn about this trend nationally with local case studies as ULI Research Fellow Ed McMahon presents on this topic, the subject of a recent ULI publication.

Ed McMahon holds the Charles E. Fraser Chair on Sustainable Development at ULI in Washington, D.C. He is nationally known as an inspiring and thought provoking speaker and  authority on topics related to sustainable development, land conservation, smart growth, and historic preservation.

As the Senior Fellow for Sustainable Development, McMahon leads ULI’s worldwide efforts to conduct research and education related to environmentally sensitive development policies and practices.

Before joining ULI in 2004, McMahon spent 14 years as the Vice President and Director of Land Use Planning for The Conservation Fund in Arlington, Va., where he helped protect more than 5 million acres of land of historic or natural significance. He is also the co-founder and former President of Scenic America. Before that, he taught law and public policy at Georgetown University Law Center and served in the U.S. Army, both at home and abroad.

McMahon recently chaired three national ULI Advisory Panels in Colorado to study healthy community initiatives in Arvada, Denver and Lamar. He is the author or co-author of 15 books and over 300 articles.
