Debates about regional growth tend to revolve around a zero sum game between the transit-rich core and the auto-oriented edges. For decades the core has grown more slowly as anti-growth politics have spread throughout most of the inner Bay Area, while the edge has grown — often without the best planning or infrastructure. Can we change this pattern? What will it take? Join regional and local leaders for a frank discussion of the possibilities of changing regional planning and a reconsideration of well-founded ideas from a half-century ago. With Alex Schafran of UC Berkeley, Egon Terplan, regional planning director for SPUR and Jim Jakel, city manager for the City of Antioch.

This event is co-presented and hosted by Arup.
