Event Description

Please join us for a related program for the exhibition Fringe Cities: Legacies of Urban Renewal in the Small American City.

Moderated by Katie Swenson of Enterprise Community Partners, this panel discussion will explore issues of development in small cities across the United States, looking towards the next 50+ years to chart avenues towards greater economic and ecological resilience in the small-city setting. What lessons can we carry forward from the trials of 20th-century urban development? How can communities and local governments best equip themselves to understand and address local needs?
