Join us for dinner and a select panel of representatives to better understand the importance and impact of thinking with a regional perspective; how communities develop, grow, and sustain themselves; and what considerations should be made to build partnerships between communities and across county boundaries.
Gabe Klein, founding partner of Cityfi, advising governments and companies worldwide on innovation in cities. Mr. Klein is also the former commissioner of both the Chicago and DC DOTs where he relentlessly revamped arcane government processes and communication internally and externally to eliminate speed to implementation with a focus on putting people first vs. automobiles on city streets.
Chris Leinberger is a land use strategist, teacher, developer, researcher and author, balancing business realities with social and environmental concerns. Mr. Leinberger is the Charles Bendit Distinguished Scholar and Research Professor and Chair of the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis at the George Washington University School of Business; president of Locus: Responsible Real Estate Developers and Investors; a Nonresident Senior Fellow at Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program in Washington DC; and founding partner of Arcadia Land Company, a New Urbanism and transit-oriented development firm based in Philadelphia.
Gabe Klein and Chris Leinberger will be joined with corporate, non-profit, and academic representatives on a panel fielding audience question regarding regionalism in the Greater Indianapolis Metro Area and Central Indiana Region.
The event is targeted at community leaders, citizens, elected officials, city planners, developers, corporate representatives, business owners, and those in the fields of urban planning, community development, civil engineering, and economic development.
