The Dallas region is playing a fast game of catch up. A generational sea change back to the city is in full tide, and with unprecedented population growth anticipated, the sprawl of our past is no guide to the future.
Join us for this timely symposium discussing the key issues facing our city, and highlighted in D Magazine's special edition on new urbanism, out on June 15. Local business and civic leaders, in addition to renowned urbanism experts, will share their perspectives on how Dallas can successfully go urban.
If you care about the future of our city, you should be there. A ticket gives you access to the entire symposium, in addition to breakfast and refreshments throughout the morning.
