Mayor Kirk Caldwell departed for Chicago Monday night to attend the fall meeting of the Urban Land Institute and participate in a panel discussion on public private partnership developments.
Caldwell is scheduled to return Saturday.
The mayor will participate in the ULI Rose Center 2013 Mayors’ Forum: Starting and Sustaining Relationships with Private Sector Partners Thursday along with the mayors of Indianapolis, Ind.; Memphis, Tenn.; and Portland, Ore.
Last month, Caldwell was named as a fellow by the ULI Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership.
Managing Director Ember Shinn also will attend the conference.
Director of Budget and Fiscal Services Nelson Koyanagi will be Acting Mayor while Mayor Caldwell is out of state.
