The Urban Land Institute (ULI) announced on November 19, 2014 that Antonio Fiol-Silva, principal at Wallace Roberts and Todd (WRT) in Philadelphia along with the mayors of Boston, Omaha, Pittsburgh and Seattle have been selected to participate in the 2015 class of fellows for the Rose Center for Public Leadership. Fiol-Silva is one of only eight urban development and design leaders nationally and the only expert locally appointed to provide counsel to the 2015 class. The mayor of each city will lead a team of three fellows and a coordinator, who together will select a local land use challenge for which they will receive technical assistance from faculty experts assembled by ULI and their peers from the other three fellowship cities.
