The ULI J.C. Nichols Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development is given annually to a living person who individually or as a representative of his or her organization, has made a distinguished contribution to community building locally or globally, who has established visionary standards of excellence in the land use and development fields, and whose commitment to creating the highest quality built environment has led to the betterment of society.

The Prize will spotlight individuals and organizations that have been on the cutting edge, employing innovative processes, techniques, strategies, and insights to encourage and to achieve the highest quality in development practices and policies at the national and local levels. The Prize will reward accomplishments that honor the diversity of land use, design, mobility, lifestyle, population, culture, and race; and it will reflect an awareness of changing technologies and their impact on a sustainable future for the communities.
