Public Realm

The Public Realm Initiative Council will work to provide programming that benefits ULI members, including but not limited to: understanding best practices, case studies and lessons learned, and innovating new approaches to planning and designing places where and through which the public connects in communities in Orange County and the Inland Empire   The expertise of the Public Realm Initiative Council members will be leveraged to share best practices with the broader ULI membership.

Our membership will be broad based and will not only include design professionals but experts in the fields of public / private development, policy planning, transportation planning, economic development, housing, real estate marketing, real estate finance, development, and construction.
