Washingtonians encouraged to share their New Years Resolutions on Twitter
Monday, January 25, 2016, Washington, D.C. – Today, ULI Washington launched a new Twitter campaign, #CityResolveDC which encourages Washingtonians to use the hashtag and tweet New Years resolutions about how they can personally make the Washington D.C. region more livable, prosperous, and friendly.
Each day from January 25 – January 28 ULI Washington will choose one winner from that day’s tweets that used #cityresolvedc. Each daily winner will receive a National Building Museum Gift Shop Gift Certificate. On the final day, Andy Shallal, owner of Busboys and Poets, will choose one grand prize winning tweet, and the winner will receive coffee with Andy at the Busboys and Poets of their choice.
ULI Washington marked the launch of the campaign with a video featuring many local personalities and civic leaders such as Andy Shallal, owner of Busbouys and Poets; Robert McCartney, Senior Regional Correspondent with the Washington Post; and Patrick Phillips, CEO of the Urban Land Institute.

“I can’t think of a better way to champion the cause of promoting healthier communities than having ‘individuals’ find their way to make ‘our’ cities collectively better in 2016. I look forward to seeing the ideas and responses from the greater Washington community” said Lisa Rother, Executive Director of ULI Washington.
#CityResolveDC is a part of a broader international campaign, #CityResolve, started by ULI Toronto in 2015. This year several Urban Land Institute district councils across the United States are participating in the campaign, with a goal of encouraging local residents to more actively think of ways to improve their communities.
