Creating Thriving Urban Neighborhoods

Moderated by Catherine Cuellar

Many Dallas neighborhoods have evolved with clear identities and personalities, while several flourished under the radar before getting noticed. Some retain their vibrancy; meanwhile others fade. What causes certain urban areas to endure? Experts suggest that for an entire city to benefit, urban neighborhoods must be cultivated and connected through multi-modal transportation, well-designed streets, shared green space, and complete traffic-calming streets. How has Dallas built connective infrastructure, developed mixed-use neighborhoods, and implemented citizen programs that enliven and populate urban neighborhoods? What else is on the horizon, and what might Dallas learn from other city successes? This Panel discussion will be held at the opening of CNU 23, the Congress for New Urbanism’s national conference, in Dallas-Fort Worth. The Panel will incorporate concepts and subject-matter experts involved in the conference.

Cost:Free and open to the public.
