Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and three other local figures have been chosen for a fellowship through 2011 at the The Urban Land Institute’s Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use.
The group will be working with other teams — led by the mayors of Minneapolis; Nashville, Tenn.; Philadelphia; and Phoenix — to advise the ULI in developing land use policies.
Foxx’s team includes Debra Campbell, the planning director for the city-county planning department; Gene Conti, North Carolina transportation secretary; and Danny Pleasant, director of the city’s transportation department.
“The exchange of ideas with the other mayors and their teams during the forum will help guide the land use, smart growth and sustainable development throughout our community both now and in the future,” Foxx said in a statement.
