You are invited, as an expert on our community, to participate in the UrbanPlan program. UrbanPlan is a 4.5 hour long workshop designed to engage, educate, and elevate participation in the planning and development processes at work in Memphis. UrbanPlan workshops are hands-on, interactive, planning simulations that allow Memphians to experience a planning process as they work in teams with Legos, a map, and a financial spreadsheet to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the fictional City of Yorktown. This unique real estate development simulation provides participants with a realistic experience in developing land use solutions to urban growth challenges. By taking on

the role of developer, participants in the workshop get a chance to broaden their knowledge in the following areas:


•how the planning process can result in a stronger neighborhood;
•the basics of financing complex projects;
•the benefits of different building types (economically and to the community);
•how density and open space factor into a neighborhood plan; and

•the importance each team member plays and the role of compromise in a project.


Breakfast, lunch, and free parking will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
