Speaking to International Revitalizing Downtowns Summit in Hamilton

I am excited to be presenting this afternoon to the Revitalizing Downtowns Summit https://www.revitalizingdowntowns.net/. My panel includes senior leaders from Community Foundations in both Cleveland and Indianapolis with some amazing experience in partnering to develop great public spaces. The conference also includes some remarkable people like Pam Blais and Ken Greenberg who have done so much to shape thinking about urbanism in Canada and around the world. We are really fortunate that the conference has come to Hamilton for the first time, signaling both hope about the future of our downtown and challenging us to action the lessons of so many other cities that remain far ahead of us in renewal.
