Equity and Resiliency in American Cities
A Mayors' Forum with the Rose Center
How do cities make sure that land-use decisions not only keep the city progressing forward, but don’t leave existing citizens behind? How do we make communities more vibrant in the near-term, as well as sustainable over periods of immense change? With support from the Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership, city leaders are identifying opportunities to rethink land use in ways that both support existing communities and transform the city for the better. Route Fifty sat down with mayors from across the country who are working with the Rose Center to tackle issues of revitalization, equity, and resiliency. We discussed the challenges they face as their cities evolve and the strategies behind inclusive and comprehensive development.
