The Washington, D.C.-based The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is coming to town Oct. 20 to Oct. 25 to meet with 100 residents to discuss Key issues and get answers to a list of questions that will be used to find out what the town wants and where it’s headed.
In June, the Longboat Key Town Commission approved the use of the consultant for a price tag of $125,000.
A working subcommittee that prepared the questions in June is still preparing documents including the history of the town for ULI consultants to peruse. A draft schedule for the meetings with residents is also being formed.
Per ULI recommendations, interviewees should include residents, members of the business and development community, representatives of key public agencies and community groups, political leaders and others who can provide information and insight to the panel.
The meetings and interviews will be held at the Longboat Key Hilton Beachfront Resort.
Suggestions for those to be interviewed can be forwarded to town planner Alaina Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
