Big City Planning Directors on Innovation Districts for Economic Development

Big city planners tackle one of the most challenging issues facing cities: Hear how larger cities take on this issue and succeed. Innovation districts as an economic development strategy were one of the topics discussed at the October 2015 Big City Planning Directors Institute in Cambridge. Learn about successes and challenges in planning for innovation districts from the experiences of planners in St. Louis, Missouri, and Columbus, Ohio. This session is presented by the partnership of the American Planning Association, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
