Final ULI report on Edmond now available

The final report on the Urban Land Institute (ULI) study of Edmond is now available on the City of Edmond website. The full report can be viewed at this link.

The report is the culmination of a week of touring, interviews, and study by a ULI panel, focused on land use issues and development improvements around downtown. During the visit, the panel focused on input from community stakeholders about topics like infill and redevelopment, local economic health, mobility, housing, and real estate.

The report includes immediate, medium-term, and long-term actions that will increase the probability of a successful outcome and recommends ways to streamline processes to make private development more quickly accomplished, thus more efficiently satisfying the needs of the city, its stakeholders, and the development community.

Among the myriad focus points, the panel took an in-depth look into the catalytic potential of a new City Hall facility. The panel agreed the design and investment in the City Center Complex will likely determine the velocity and quality of future developments in the study area.

City staff is reviewing the final report and will schedule a workshop later this fall to go over the final findings and recommendations.

The City of Edmond partnered with sponsors including the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce, Edmond Economic Development Authority, UCO, Switchgrass Capital, and the Rader Building Company to bring the panel to Edmond.
