What does the Future Hold for the American Suburb?
Makeover Montgomery 2 | Moving Forward Montgomery
A Three-Day planning conference examining the changing face of Montgomery County communities and suburbs across the country
As metropolitan areas across the country grapple with the profound economic, demographic and environmental shifts of the 21st century, they also face the demand for a vastly different American suburb- one that is more urbanized, sustainable and diverse. The National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education, the Montgomery County Planning Department and the Urban Studies and Planning Program at the University of Maryland are once again joining forces to tackle the changing 21st century suburb with Makeover Montgomery 2 | Moving Forward Montgomery (MM2). The three-day event will take place May 8-10, 2014.
Twenty-one sessions covered a variety of topics ranging from public/private partnerships to public art, sharing the perspectives and knowledge of some of the brightest minds in planning, design, economics and development from across the country. See the full conference agenda here.
