The Urban Land Institute Charlotte is holding an online competition this week to find ideas and resolutions for improving the city.

From Tuesday through Friday, ULI Charlotte will track tweets with the hashtag #CLTResolve. Prizes will be awarded daily for the best tweet, and an overall winner will be picked Jan. 12. The grand prize winner will get coffee with Deputy City Manager Ron Kimble, who is ULI Charlotte’s district chair.

The Urban Land Institute is a nonprofit group that studies land use and development. The group’s Charlotte chapter includes more than 650 members.

Here’s how ULI described #CLTResolve: “When it comes to New Year’s, there’s no resolution too big or small – especially when it benefits your city. Planting trees, improving walkability, or vowing to take public transportation in lieu of your car can make all the difference, and, we’re taking note! Get creative on January 5-8 then go to Twitter and tweet how you intend to make Charlotte a better place this year with hashtag#CLTresolve. We’ll spread the word.”
