Keynote and panel on the pros and cons of density

ULI’s mission is to create compact communities that are walkable, transit-friendly, and conserving of our landscapes and natural resources. However, density has become a bad word in many neighborhoods and communities, where residents fret about traffic and loss of character. What are the pros and cons of dense urban infill? The consequences of slow-growth policies? Our panel will present diverse viewpoints in a lively debate format moderated by Ed Sealover of Denver Business Journal.

After the program, we'll have an end of year holiday celebration with live music, appetizers, bar, and a closer look at the historic and long-shuttered Evans School, a 1904 historic gem soon to be revived with new uses. Festive attire and guests encouraged with additional registration.
