Equitable Development & Public Space

May 17

5:30 - 7:30pm
Better Block
700 West Davis Street, Dallas, TX 75208

In this panel discussion for Smart Growth for Dallas, moderated by Dr. Ivonne Audirac, we will explore the issues of urban development and the effect of public space design on neighborhood vitality. This moderated forum will discuss how the design of public spaces can impact neighborhood strength and urban development, through exploring how public space design can contribute to the perpetuation of neighborhood disinvestment or be a catalyst for new development and neighborhood desirability.

The panelists will be Aaron Abelson of HR&A Advisors, Brent Brown of the Trinity Park Conservancy, Brianna Brown of Texas Organizing Project, and Cynthia Salinas of the Esperanza Building Blocks.
