2019 Urban Studies Forum: Learning from other Cities

“Learning From Other Cities,” the theme for the 2019 Urban Studies Forum, will bring together key presentations from three other cities, whose practices could inform our local approaches to governance and community development.

This year’s forum includes leadership from three cities:

  • Bristol, U.K. (inclusive governance)
  • New York, NY (coalition building and community development)
  • Long Beach, CA (urban planning in a port city)

All presentations will focus on the role of inclusivity and coalition building in shaping policy, planning, and governance environments that advance urban conditions and create a more participatory decision making process. In addition to representatives from the invited cities, our keynote speaker will discuss coalition building cases studies from various jurisdictions in the U.S.

The selected topics connect with planning and policy issues in the South Puget Sound and will be of interest to our leadership as well as community members.
