Urban Land Institute
Urban Land Institute Studies Downtown Clearwater
In an effort to further existing initiatives, the City of Clearwater contracted with the Urban Land
Institute (ULI) to evaluate the city's vision and strategies for the development of the downtown.
The Urban Land Institute is the nation?s premier nonprofit urban planning and real estate education
and research institution representing the entire spectrum of land use and development disciplines.
The week-long process started Sunday, June 15 and culminated with a public presentation of the
review and recommendations on Friday, June 20. Representatives of various organizations were selected
to participate in interviews with the ULI panelists and similar stakeholders. Interviews took place
Tuesday, June 17.
Downtown Clearwater has served as the heart of the civic, business and recreational life for the
community of Clearwater and Pinellas County since its inception. In addition, it has been the gateway
to Clearwater Beach and a focal point with the centerpiece being Coachman Park, and more recently the
downtown Clearwater Harbor Marina.
The Urban Land Institute headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a global, nonprofit education and research
institute supported by its members. The mission of ULI is to provide leadership in the responsible
use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
