TAPs

Since 1947, ULI has harnessed the multidisciplinary expertise of its members to help communities solve difficult land use, development, and redevelopment challenges on behalf of government agencies and community-based nonprofits. At the local level, this is accomplished through a Technical Assistance Panel (TAP).

Technical Assistance Panels offer a continuum of capacity to municipalities with land use challenges. The cornerstone of our Panels is the ability to connect the public sector to the professional, interdisciplinary expertise of ULI members.

TAPs

The TAP Program

Technical Assistance Panels, or TAPS, bring the expertise of the ULI membership and the real estate community together to collaborate to find solutions for complex land use, development, and redevelopment projects.

Over an intensive one and a half-day working session, experts address key questions about a specific development issue or policy barrier within a defined geographic area.

Over the course of the TAP, panelists tour the study area, meet with stakeholders, and work collaboratively to produce an initial report of findings which are presented on site at the conclusion of the panel. Within 4-6 weeks after the panel is completed, all findings and recommendations are provided report, providing a roadmap for success.

Objective of the ULI TAP Program

TAPs are designed specifically to be run and implemented by District Councils, and are intentionally flexible to provide sponsoring organizations a customized approach to specific land use and real estate issues.

The topics explored through our Technical Assistance Services are selected based on their applicability and resonance to communities around the region. The recommendations produced by our Panels- addressing emerging issues, land use, preservation, development and economic growth are documented in the reports available for download here.
