Moving from Planning to Implementation
September 17, 2013
Robin Hacke of Living Cities discussed moving from planning to implementation as we reshape the landscape of opportunity in the U.S.
Billions of dollars of investment are going into the build-out of light rail in dozens of cities. This investment is catalytic and will have dramatic, far-reaching effects. By engaging with developers, investors, employers, and community and philanthropic leaders at an early stage, planners can ensure that the plans they formulate "jump the gap" between vision and reality.
Part of moving to implementation also requires understanding what it takes to make plans into a set of projects that realize the promise of the original vision.
