2015 Urban Summit - September 17th

Dallas thinks BIG. But it is often in our small projects and accomplishments that we build our city. For every Klyde Warren Park, there are a dozen Bishop Arts Districts. For every Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, a score of trails, trolley stops and bike lanes. For every top-down master plan that ends up on a shelf, many neighborhood initiatives and individual interventions thrive and make a positive urban impact. Join us for a day of empowerment and education with your fellow citizens as we explore how to rediscover and implement the “true” nature of Dallas. How do we celebrate and incubate the uniqueness of our neighborhoods? How do we develop connections between those unique nodes and seam together the diverse patchwork quilt we call our city? And how do we reconnect with the natural infrastructures that first drew Dallas’ founders to this plot of blackland prairie? With informative talks and panel discussions with planners, architects, neighborhood leaders, elected officials, educators, and community members, the 2015 Urban Summit will give you the inspiration and tactical tool kit to participate in the place-making that truly leads to big things. September 17th, from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm, Reception, Introduction and Keynote.
