Author’s Forum on Urbanism is a monthly series featuring authors in an hour-long, interactive discussion of recent publications on urbanism. The series, part of CNU’s On the Park Bench webinar program, takes a deep dive into each author’s insights through the lens of New Urbanism. The focus will be on ideas that are embodied in the book, which advance the understanding of precedents and design strategies to repair and make sustainable urbanism. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with the authors during the session.
Community development expert Ilana Preuss offers an important book for our times, explaining how local leaders can revitalize their downtowns or main streets by bringing in and supporting small-scale manufacturing. These businesses offer well-paying jobs and support thriving places with local business ownership. Preuss is interviewed by attorney and urbanist Dan Slone.
This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
