ULI Washington received the Regional Partnership Award yesterday from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) at its annual membership meeting. COG’s Regional Partnership Award is presented to organizations or individuals who have worked with COG to improve the quality of life for area residents. ULI Washington exemplifies these qualities by convening thought leaders from across the region to advance best practices in land use planning, real estate, and transportation. ULI Washington and COG have partnered to deliver multiple Technical Assistance Panels (TAPS) to help its local government members create vibrant and thriving communities in Activity Centers. ULI Washington’s TAPs program is a vehicle to deliver honest, unbiased answers to land use and real estate questions that defy easy solutions. This year, COG’s Regional Partnership Award was presented to ULI Washington by Derrick L. Davis, COG Board Vice Chair and Prince George’s County Council Member.
In response to receiving the award, ULI Washington’s Executive Director, Liz Price, said “ULI Washington is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with COG on important regional issues. Our 2,500 members who represent all facets of the real estate industry share a commitment to improving the quality of life in our region through responsible land use that foster stronger communities. Regional collaboration is essential to achieving those goals, and we look forward to our continued partnership with COG as we further our mission to advance the region.”
