SPUR Symposium: Beyond the City: Turning toward regional challenges
"True regional planning has been the elusive goal of many generations of Bay Area planners. While the region boasts some great successes – saving the Bay, preserving the greenbelt and the building of BART – we still struggle to adequately manage regional land use. This symposium will trace the current state of regional planning, and assess how new climate change laws give hope for greater regional coordination. Join panelists Radhika Fox of PolicyLink; Mike Teitz, professor emeritus in regional planning at UC Berkeley; Will Travis, executive director of the Bay Conservation and Development Commission; Egon Terplan, SPUR’s regional planning director; and exhibition curator Benjamin Grant."
