Save the Date for the 14th Annual Urban Design Conference: March 16, 2017
Downtowns have seen a significant resurgence in the past decade, yet the suburbs still represent the great majority of our developed landmass, dwarfing our urban cores. What design opportunities do the suburbs offer? The 14th Annual Urban Design Conference will explore how we got to this point and ways to move forward, considering sustainable solutions for retrofit and development, including strategies for policy, transportation, design, energy and economic development.
Thursday, March 16, 2017 | 8 am to 4:30 pm
