Release: ULI Washington Announces #CityResolveDC Winner

Andy Shallal picks from over 150 urban resolutions

The Urban Land Institute Washington (ULI Washington) today announced its #CityResolveDC Twitter campaign winner, selected from over 150 individual civic resolutions submitted last week. Judged by Busboys and Poets Owner Andy Shallal, the winner will enjoy a one on one coffee with Shallal.

The winning #CityResolveDC resolution was submitted by Manna, Inc.: “@ULIWashington Our #CityResolveDC for 2016 is to provide residents of #Ward8 access to our Home Buyers club w/ @DCBridgePark!”

The campaign attracted a range of great resolutions from helping rescue dogs, to exploring Washington festivals, neighborhoods and parks, to more frequently utilizing DC’s extensive public transportation system. One tweet committed to frequenting the many area famers markets more often. Another committed to participating more in community preservation efforts.

“I am impressed by the quality of the resolutions and the enthusiastic response of area residents to our campaign. 2016 looks to be a great year for real estate professionals and city builders. The people of the Washington area are taking action to make their city more livable” 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, including Washington, D.C., participated in the campaign, with a goal of encouraging local residents to more actively think of ways to improve their communities.
