Civic leaders are leveraging opportunities within their cities through the act of “design.” Understanding that the city is a landscape, enlightened mayors are turning to landscape architects for urban refurbishment. This session focuses on national experiences and the arc of one mayor in particular.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how local elected officials are addressing design through a variety of city offices and initiatives.
