MINNEAPOLIS MAYOR R.T. RYBAK AMONG FOUR U.S. MAYORS NAMED AS FELLOWS BY THE URBAN LAND INSTITUTE DANIEL ROSE CENTER FOR PUBLIC LEADERSHIP IN LAND USE

Posted in State of Minnesota

WASHINGTON (October 6, 2009) - The Urban Land Institute (ULI) Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use has named Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and three other outstanding local community leaders to serve in fellowships for the Center through 2010. Rybak's local team will join three others led by the mayors of Nashville, Philadelphia and Phoenix. The purpose of the fellowship program is to provide city leaders with the insights, peer-to-peer learning, and analysis they need to successfully build and sustain their cities.



Rybak and his team will offer guidance to ULI in the development of products, programs and services that cover a broad spectrum of work incorporating three over-arching themes: real estate finance and development; the interdependencies and respective roles of the public and private sectors; and the role and importance of the public realm in creating viable, thriving communities.



"Mayor Rybak has led Minneapolis through several successful revitalization projects during his time in office," said ULI Chief Executive Officer Patrick L. Phillips. "We anticipate that he and his team will use their year in the Daniel Rose Fellowship to continue this impressive trajectory of improved land use decision-making."



"We are thrilled to be part of the inaugural ULI Daniel Rose Fellowship program and look forward to tapping into ULI's amazing team of experts as well as the knowledge of our peers in other cities to help us tackle our local land use challenges to help make Minneapolis even better," said Rybak.



The Minneapolis team will work with the other selected mayors and their respective teams to address the most challenging land use issues facing their communities. Over the upcoming year, Rybak and his team will work with leading experts in the real estate development, finance, and land use fields with the intention of tackling complex land use issues facing each community.



Rybak's 2009-10 ULI Daniel Rose Fellowship team members are as follows:



Barbara Sporlein is currently the Director of Planning for the City of Minneapolis. She joined the Planning Division of the Minneapolis Department of Planning and Economic Development in 2004. Sporlein has served as the Deputy Director of the St. Paul Public Housing Agency and as a City Planner for the City of St. Paul, among other positions.
