ULI LEADERSHIP LUNCHEON: Building Equitable Cities with Henry Cisneros
ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR THIS LUNCHEON CLOSES MONDAY 9/10. EMAIL JANIS PLOETZ IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND. A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS REMAIN.
Join ULI San Antonio at our next Leadership Luncheon featuring the Honorable Henry Cisneros.
An increasingly common concern in cities across the US is that the overall urban revival is leaving growing numbers of residents behind. In addition, evidence suggests that more “equitable” cities are stronger economically. So how can real estate and land use leaders work together to create more inclusive urban prosperity?
This is the subject of a recent ULI publication: Building Equitable Cities: How to Drive Economic Mobility and Regional Growth, co-authored by Henry Cisneros, chairman of CityView in San Antonio, Texas.
Cisneros–a past Mayor of San Antonio and former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development–will discuss the issue at the next ULI San Antonio Leadership Luncheon on September 11. Cisneros will describe the business and social case for real estate and land use leaders to help create a more inclusive urban prosperity, detailing what’s working and how to do more of it in areas of wide interest, including:
- Affordable and workforce housing
- Transit-oriented development
- Public/private redevelopment
- Community revitalization
- And more.
Please join us for this important event!
