What is UrbanPlan?
UrbanPlan is a proven way to educate high school and college students in the dynamics of real estate ownership, development and planning. It is a realistic, engaging, and academically challenging classroom-based program in which students learn the roles, issues, trade-offs, and economics involved in urban development. The program provides tomorrow’s future voters, neighbors, public officials, and land use professionals with a hands-on experience in developing realistic land use solutions to complex urban growth challenges.

Since the Dallas-Fort Worth District Council joined the UrbanPlan effort in 2005, it has facilitated the program in over 100 classes involving over 1,500 students. UrbanPlan volunteers have two roles:

  • Facilitate teams of students to redevelop a hypothetical blighted area via a public-private partnership;

 
  • Serve on a mock city council to judge presentations and select a winning team at the end of the session.
