Developer as Planner, Planner as Developer
You'll learn about:
- How market analysis, uncovering authentic local drivers, and crowd sourcing set the stage for stretching conventional markets into regional destinations
- How local, state, and national funding sources can be attracted through the neighborhood design and entitlement process for street and watershed infrastructure so that development can be sustained from generation to generation, rather than just piecemeal through incremental pods development
- Managing the engineering process so that it responds to the neighborhood master plan rather than driving isolated infrastructure elements, creating the ability to secure a more robust mix of uses and housing types
The ULI Community Builders Handbook published in 1948 by JC Nichols laid out best practices in which planning and development are inseparable. Learn from a planner using development and a developer using planning how to advance that enduring philosophy .
All too often, urban plans and community visions remain on a shelf without proper implementation. One of the primary factors that contributes to this lack of implementation is the disconnect between the urban planning and real estate development processes. This segregated approach to planning and development results in the former remaining an academic exercise without real world results, while the latter becomes focused on financial needs rather than the placemaking and maximizing the overall value of place.
Learn from an urban planner and real estate developer how each uses the other's practice disciplines to implement neighborhoods with Tripple Bottom line outcomes. Learn how to integrate the 15+ disciplines that must be coordinated and managed to create transformative mixed-use development. Speakers will share their lessons learned in new Transit-Oriented development, historic downtowns suburban retrofits.
This urban planner (who think like a developer) and the developer (who thinks like the urban planner) will discuss how a comprehensive approach--whereby each discipline is considered within the context of the others--leads to market readiness, community buy-in and, not to be forgotten, financeable projects that achieve profitability, social equity and neighborhood cohesion.

Confirmed SpeakerScott Polikov, FAICP, is President of Gateway Planning, yet he started his professional life practicing law in Washington, D.C. Returning to Texas, Scott was appointed by the City of Austin to serve on the Transit Authority and MPO Boards. Alarmed that MPO’s Long Range Transportation plan ignored development patterns in a sustainable way, Scott changed careers to focus on walkable mixed-use places and the economics to create them. Totaling more than $10 Billion in constructed neighborhoods and context sensitive infrastructure, Gateway Planning’s notable work includes leading the urban design analysis for Dallas CityMAP—a 50-year plan for the reinvention of Dallas’ urban highway corridors, as well as planning and facilitating value capture for the 18 stations for the Durham-Orange Light Rail line that will connect UNC/Chapel Hill, Duke and North Carolina Central Univ. His team’s work also includes redevelopment plans and form-based codes for historic downtowns such as Owensboro, Kentucky, Rogers, Arkansas and Downtown McKinney, Texas, which Money Magazine underscored as the primary reason it named McKinney the Number 1 Best Places to Live in America. Scott formerly served on the national boards for CNU and the Form-Based Codes Institute (FBCI).
