    ULI ‘s Urban Resilience Program presents…
    ULI Nashville: You Think Nashville is Hot? Just Wait!
     Expert Recommendations on Equitable Development & Design Responses to Extreme Heat
    Panel of National and Local Experts Convened to Advise Nashville
    Panel bios found HERE.
    Extreme heat is a significant public health and equity concern in Nashville: Meanwhile, retrofits of aging building stock and implementation of design, land use, and construction strategies for new development can help mitigate its effects by reducing local urban temperatures and maintaining comfortable and safe inside temperatures.
    On June 8th – 11th the Metro Government of Nashville and Davidson County, the Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC), and Core Development partnered with ULI Americas and ULI Nashville to host a virtual Technical Assistance Panel (vTAP). The panel spent three and a half days virtually touring the site, meeting with the sponsor organizations, interviewing relevant Nashville stakeholders, deliberating, and formulating recommendations to equitably respond to extreme heat and to mitigate its health threats.

    Join us on Friday, June 11th to hear the vTAP panel’s recommendations. ULI Customer Service will send the program zoom link with your registration confirmation.

    This ULI Nashville virtual Technical Advisory Panel is part of a larger series of resilience technical assistance and learning opportunities, called the Resilient Land Use Cohort. The Resilient Land Use Cohort (RLUC) is a network of ULI District Councils, member experts, and community partners in eight cities working together to identify strategies to be more resilient in the face of climate change and other vulnerabilities, including floods, extreme storms, drought, wildfire, and extreme heat, as well as the related social, environmental, and economic impacts.
    ULI’s Urban Resilience program convenes the cohort regularly to learn from national best practices and discuss peer cities’ next steps advancing resilience through land use policies and development strategies. At the conclusion of the cohort in Fall 2021, learnings from technical assistance engagements and cohort discussion will be synthesized in a final report, to be released and accompanied by a national webinar.  Funding for this engagement and the cohort is provided by the ULI Foundation through support from JPMorgan Chase.
