Since 1947, the Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Services program has assembled 400+ ULI-member teams to help TAP sponsors find solutions for issues including affordable housing, economic development, placemaking, healthy communities, walkability, public-private partnerships and infrastructure, among others.
Technical Advisory Panels (TAPs), composed of qualified and unbiased ULI Colorado members who volunteer their time, bring relevant expertise directly into communities to address difficult real estate and land use challenges. TAPs are designed to provide practical and actionable recommendations that produce results on the ground. They are not academic exercises, but are intended to be blueprints for positive change. TAPs help communities establish this direction and inform next steps, including targeted investments in planning, economic development and infrastructure.
In Colorado, ULI Technical Advisory Panels have provided solutions for such key sites as Five Points, the Colorado Convention Center, Coors Field, Fitzsimons, and the Denver Justice Center. Since 2003, ULI Colorado has completed more than 50 TAPs leading to positive policy changes and built projects.

Final TAP Report
In 2019, the City of Central retained Walker Consultants to perform a quantitative parking study to determine the utilization of existing parking within the commercial core of the City.
During Fall 2019, Central City participated in the Hometown Colorado Initiative, an initiative to connect communities in Colorado with the wide-ranging knowledge and academic discipline of the University of Colorado Denver faculty and students to address local issues that advance community livability and quality of life. Through this partnership, there were two student projects including 1) developing a trail and 2) preservation and restoration of the Masonic Lodge.
The trail development project consisted of researching how to develop a trail from the downtown core, starting in the Teller Lot, connecting to William C. Russell Park.
Masonic Lodge Preservation and Restoration
The Masonic Lodge project included researching the historical background and significance of the property, producing a site plan, determining appropriate avenues for rehabilitation and/or reconstruction, and developing three complete plans for the building based on historic preservation principles.
In September 2019, Central City was accepted to participate in OEDITs Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP) with a focus on growing our outdoor recreation economy. This planning assistance established a partnership with students in the Master of Business Administration and Master of Environmental Studies at University of Colorado Boulder. The students explored economic opportunities related to outdoor recreation. The project included site visits, community engagement, economic exploration, and recommendations to provide an actionable outdoor recreation development plan.
