RMLUI’s Annual Land Use Conference is the place for land use and development professionals in the West to share knowledge and network. With more than 400 attendees annually, RMLUI’s conference helps define and influence the West’s land use and development future.

Western Places/Western Spaces:
Building Fair & Resilient Communities

Thursday and Friday, March 12 & 13, 2015
University of Denver campus

Across the West, communities large and small are grappling with change. The 2015 RMLUI Conference will focus on the innovative ways cities and towns across the West are building more resilient, equitable, and vital communities. This year’s theme addresses how we can meet the many challenges of the future—including threats posed by climate change, a modern economy, and demographic shifts—while better addressing issues of social and environmental justice. We will also explore the cutting edge tools, business models, and technologies that are helping planners, developers, and communities move forward in a smarter way.

This year’s featured track focuses on resilience. In the wake of fires, flood, and on-going drought, communities across the West are working to rebuild and mitigate future disasters. Sessions will address both local and regional planning issues, as well as how to leverage funding and resources.

In addition, RMLUI is offering an optional workshop on Wednesday, March 11. Local Responses to Fracking is a day-long workshop exploring a variety of approaches that towns, cities, and counties are using to deal with the challenges and opportunities presented by oil and gas development. The workshop is designed so that attendees can opt for only the workshop or can add it to their regular conference registration.

Our conference is not possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Their financial contributions help fund our programs and conference activities. Our Aspen Sponsors also provide in-kind support by helping to promote the conference.

Please contact Susan Daggett for sponsorship opportunities.
