RMLUI Ideas Round Up: Race, Equity & Land Use

Tuesday, June 30
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., MST

A couple of weeks ago, we announced our intention to launch a discussion series to consider the land use implications of the twin crises we face: the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial inequity that has long divided our country. (ICYMI, you can read original statement on the RMLUI website.) And today, we invite you to join us in dialogue (on Zoom), beginning Tuesday, June 30th from 10:00-11:30am, as we launch the RMLUI Ideas RoundUP.

This is NOT another webinar, but rather is designed as a facilitated forum for idea exchange and conversation. Our first RoundUP will focus explicitly on Race, Equity, and Land Use and will set the stage for the entire discussion series.

The role of RMLUI has always been to convene thought leaders, to facilitate conversations, and to educate professionals. The RMLUI Ideas RoundUP is an effort to explore our shared land use agenda, taking into account what we are learning about our policies as they relate both to containing a pandemic and promoting a socially just and sustainable community.

These conversations are intended to be opportunities for the entire RMLUI community―land development professionals, community leaders, academic partners, and students―to come together in thoughtful dialogue about the problems we’re facing and how we improve our land use system to better address the inequities in our society.

Our initial Ideas RoundUP on Race, Equity, and Land Use will provide background on the history of racism in our land development system, and will allow for discussion, for listening, and for learning.

In later sessions, we will build on this initial discussion and consider a range of topics, including civic engagement and public participation, housing and homelessness, transportation and mobility, public space, and more.

Mark your calendars now for June 30th and every second and fourth Tuesday throughout the summer. We want to hear from you.
