Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs)

Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) are part of the ULI Advisory Services program. TAPs were designed to be run and implemented by District Councils, the local chapters of ULI. Panelists for these one- to two-day work sessions are selected from the District Council’s membership to address land use challenges that require local knowledge to resolve.

As with other Advisory Services panels, the scope of the work is defined by the sponsor. An objective team of seasoned professionals forms the panel, and its recommendations often build upon the community’s existing accomplishments. As always, the outcome is of the high quality for which ULI is known.

In March 2013, a group of dedicated volunteers from the ULI San Diego-Tijuana District Council and Mexico City were given the opportunity to participate in a Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) to provide advice and recommendations for the redevelopment and revitalization of downtown Tijuana in Baja California, Mexico. Chaired by Greg Shannon, this was the first cross-border TAP conducted by a District Council.
