Setting the Course: What are our upcoming challenges? How can we best move forward strategies such as regional-scale, ambitious redevelopments; small, incremental interventions for slow growth, shrinking suburban footprints, redfields to greenfields, while considering economic recovery, reduction of carbon and energy use, and infrastructure updating, as well as identify and judge the merit of new strategies and needs for new strategies? We will review and discuss the White Paper and move it forward, please download and review it ahead of time as it will be central to our discussion.
