2013-2014 Daniel Rose Fellows

The mayors of Honolulu, Hawaii; Indianapolis, Indiana; Memphis, Tennessee and Portland, Oregon, have been selected as the 2013 – 2014 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 yearlong 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.
