Bipartisan Placemaking: Reaching Conservatives session
3:45 PM to 5:00 PM in Grand Ballroom A
Community building, placemaking, traditional neighborhood design. Good urbanism should hold a deep appeal across the political spectrum, but too often gets roadblocked by unproductive stereotypes. The American Conservative magazine joins CNU co-founder Andres Duany and Strong Towns' Chuck Marohn in a discussion on how to bridge the urbanism divide and how to engage community-oriented conservatives at the local and national levels.
The NextGen debates return to their edgy roots. We start at 8:30 PM in Grand Ballroom A. Audience voting so be there and be heard.
Auto-based New Urbanism was a mistake.
Affirmative: Kristin Jeffers and Edward Erfurt
Opposition: Eliza Harris Juliano and Sherryl Muriente
Sprawl Retrofit is a pleasant concept, but is not a viable solution to widespread sprawl.
Affirmative: Kevin Klinkenberg and Lee Sobel
Opposition: Ellen Dunham-Jones and Emily Talen
