RMLUI Annual Conference
2013 Annual Land Use Conference
Land Use for a Lifetime: Changing Demographics and Shifting Priorities
March 6 – 8, 2013 | University of Denver Campus
Thank you to our sponsors for helping to make our event such a success.
Shifting demographics and housing preferences are creating new challenges for modern land use professionals. Fifty years ago, urban flight referred to those fleeing the cities in favor of tidy suburbs, leaving behind blight and urban decay. Today, urban flight is reversed, as both Boomers and their children return to cities in droves, looking for urban attractions and modern living. Young families are seeking a balance: the good schools and family friendly features of the suburbs combined with the amenities and walkability of the city. They also want new development that protects their natural environment and iconic landscapes.
The times they are a changin’, and cities are racing to keep up. Whether it is siting schools for young kids, improving accessibility for an aging population, or creating mixed use urban infill that can help meet the needs of a growing, changing population, land use planning can help communities face these new challenges. This year’s conference will focus on changing demographics, emerging trends, and the tools that can help communities grow and change to serve the shifting priorities of their populations.
