15 ULI Volunteers visited a Providence High School AP Government Class and UNC Charlotte Center of Real Estate graduate class to facilitate the UrbanPlan program. Using legos, site maps and a mock RFP, students are put into teams and compete to win the bid from a mock city council. Urban Plan is a realistic, engaging, and academically challenging classroom-based, in which students learn the roles, issues, trade-offs, and economics involved in urban development. It provides our future voters, neighbors, community leaders, public officials, and land use professionals with a hands-on experience in developing realistic land use solutions to vexing urban growth challenges. Good luck students!!
