Redefining:"Rust Belt" Land Use: Aligning Vision and Investment


Thu., Feb. 27, 2014
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Baltimore Office, Baltimore, MD

Directions  /  Parking


The Federal Reserve Banks of Richmond, Chicago, Cleveland, and Philadelphia, The Funders Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities, The National League of Cities and other national, state, and local partners invite you to the third in a series of mult-city conversations in-person and via videoconference.

The third session will be based in Detroit and will explore strategies being used to disinvest in declining areas for the purpose of targeting resources to places with greater market strength.  We will consider new and emerging “undevelopment” policies and programs being used, or considered, in the four participating cities.  The discussion will include program frameworks; resource needs; proponents and opponents; and measures of success.  The discussion—an opportunity for experts in the cities to learn from one another’s experience—will consider the reduction of capital and social investment in certain areas and new strategies to stabilize extremely distressed neighborhoods.

There is no cost to attend. Registration is required.
