Saving Our Suburbs (Part 1): How to Create Successful Suburbs

The formulas that guided suburban growth for more than 60 years no longer work. How can suburbs adapt to increasingly complex social, economic, fiscal, and environmental demands? What new approaches can help them secure their futures?

In part one of this three-part webinar series on Saving Our Suburbs (S.O.S.), panelists will unpack data and share case studies that show how suburbs are preparing for—and succeeding in—a new demographic, cultural, and economic landscape. They’ll give perspective on how public officials and community leaders can rethink their approach to development and growth in response to changing tastes and markets.

Panelists include:

- Chris Leinberger, Chair and Professor, Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis George Washington University

- Jason Beske, AICP, Consultant and Adjunct Professor at Virginia Tech College of Architecture & Urban Studies

- David Dixon, FAIA, Vice President, Stantec’s Urban Places
