But families and empty nesters are moving to the city too, and for the first time since the 1920s, population growth in US cities is outpacing the growth of the suburbs. What will this reshaping of the American landscape mean for society? How will cities grow and change to accommodate new populations, a changing environment, and a global economy? What will drive innovation and economic growth in the new urban context? And how can cities best plan, govern, and design for the future?</p><p><br />Bruce Katz, Jeff Speck, Janette Sadik-Khan, Kasim Reed, Sommer Mathis, Mitch Landrieu</p><p> Sun, 29 Jun 2014 02:21:00 +0000 Rob St. Mary 20760 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Imagining 2024: Urban America Hybrids to Hydrogen to Robots?
