As in past iterations of growth and development, U.S. cities are driven by technological innovation. Now that the digital era is here, what can Cleveland do to seize the opportunities presented by new technologies to create a more inclusive and resilient city for our diverse population, which in turn will attract the innovative businesses and citizens we want to draw here?
As the City of Cleveland and the Urban Land Institute plan for a 21st Century City Symposium, to be held in March, 2021, Adie Tomer, Fellow at the Brookings Institution, will kick off the discussion with a focus on the best practices that will allow cities to maximize their future prosperity. After Mr. Tomer's remarks, he and Freddy L. Collier, Jr., Director of Planning for the City of Cleveland, will discuss some current initiatives nationally and in Cleveland.
