Technical Assistance (TAP)

This fee-based service provides the market-based expertise of ULI members to cities, developers, and other organizations that need objective analysis and advice on how to solve difficult development problems. Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) are typically one-and-a-half-day sessions in which multidisciplinary teams of five to eight real estate development professionals tour the site under review, interview local stakeholders, and meet to develop recommendations that are presented publicly at the end of the session and in a follow-up report.

ULI Nevada Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs)
and Advisory Services

ULI’s strength is in bringing together a diverse group of professionals in the private and public sectors to conduct a deeper level of research and education on complex land use issues to objectively provide advice and recommendations to public agencies and charitable organizations.

Since 1947, on a national basis, the Urban Land Institute Advisory Services Program has been assisting communities by bringing together nationally-recognized real estate, planning, infrastructure, public sector, finance and development experts, among others, to provide unbiased pragmatic advice for addressing complex land use opportunities and challenges.

ULI Nevada organizes Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) comprised of local ULI members, who collectively have varied and broad experience and knowledge applicable to particular problems to be considered. Panelists have experience in the planning, development and redevelopment of land and the ownership, management and financing of real property, specifically related to the designated study area. TAP panelists are screened to avoid potential conflicts of interest.

As with other Advisory Services panels, the scope of the work is defined by the sponsor. An objective team of seasoned professionals forms the panel, and its recommendations often build upon the community’s existing accomplishments. As always, the outcome is of the high quality for which ULI is known.

Panels are organized as one-day or two-day projects, depending on the complexity of the scope of work. Panels consist of 4-8 specialists, who are ULI members volunteering their time to provide this community outreach service to help make our communities a better place. ULI panels focus on neighborhood revitalization, smart growth, and asset management, to name a few. It is a joint effort between ULI and the organization that produces an implementation strategy that is based on sound information, community realities, and best practices so that the community gets the best possible result.
