Learning from Washington D.C.: Monumental planning and thriving TODs

11:05 AM PST on December 22, 2009

"From Pierre L'Enfant’s plan of 1791 to James McMillan’s Plan of 1901, Washington D.C. is a city with a rich planning tradition. The Nation's capital is also home to a dizzying array of monuments and memorials, with more to come in future years. Find out how Washington D.C. itself is planning for its next 100 years, and how the region's suburban transit oriented development may or may not be a model that other regions can draw upon. Join Rod Freebairn-Smith, architect and urban historian, SPUR Deputy Director Sarah Karlinsky, and SPUR Regional Planning Director Egon Terplan."
