    UrbanPlan Workshop

    UrbanPlan workshops are highly interactive, planning simulations that allow Memphians a firsthand experience in the fundamental forces that affect urban development.

    UrbanPlan is a daylong simulation of a planning process involving teams that work together using legos, a site plan and a spreadsheet to respond to a fictional RFP for the neighborhood of Elmwood in the city of Yorktown. Teams must decide how dense to build out a 5 ½ block area, whether to keep or move a homeless shelter, what type of retail is appropriate and which neighborhood groups to keep happy – all while meeting the financial projections of the City and the Developer (your boss). The day ends with teams presenting to a mock City Council that will award the project to the Development Team with the best proposal.

    “Building a city is a complicated process that requires many necessary tradeoffs and balancing a city’s equitable needs with the values and desires of multiple parties is no small feat. The UrbanPlan program seeks to train how every party at the table plays a role in shaping a city’s fate. Non-profit professionals, policy makers, developers, architects, public officials, resident leaders and young professionals should make every effort to engage in this simulation to learn these very values.” Leslie Smith, BLDG Memphis
