2012-2013 Daniel Rose Fellows

The mayors of Austin, TX, Hartford, CT; Louisville, KY; and Tacoma, WA, plus 12 additional local land use leaders from these cities have been selected as the 2012-2013 class of fellows for the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use. Each of the four mayors is leading a team of three additional fellows, including public- and private-sector representatives, from their respective cities.

The year-long Daniel Rose Fellowship provides participants with leadership training and professional development opportunities, and it benefits their respective cities by offering technical assistance on a local land-use challenge.

The Land Use Challenges

Here are summaries of the challenges selected by the four cities.

Austin: Austin’s biggest challenge is creating a phased rail package, with realistic funding sources, that voters would support. Knowing that asking the right questions is half the battle, the Austin Rose Fellowship Team is seeking possible solutions to these challenges. Read more.

Hartford: The Albany Avenue – Homestead Avenue corridor is one of the most highly travelled areas in Hartford, and is the primary transit route extending west from the Downtown into adjacent towns. Hartford’s Daniel Rose Fellowship land use challenge is to create a strategy that capitalizes on assets and improvements along the corridor to establish a gateway to Hartford, a “main street” for the community, and create an environment that attracts economic investment.

Louisville: The Fourth Street Corridor has been identified as Louisville’s Daniel Rose Fellowship land use challenge. Historically, Fourth Street served as Louisville’s north-south commercial spine; connecting dense retail/entertainment venues, with institutions, residences, and workplaces along a bustling streetcar corridor.

Tacoma: Tacoma’s Medical Mile is a downtown corridor bordered by two of the oldest residential and commercial areas – the Stadium neighborhood to the north, and the Hilltop neighborhood along the south. The City of Tacoma seeks input on how best to leverage existing assets that will attract investment along the Medical Mile. Read more.
