We live and work in a region experiencing massive growth, with the North Central Council of Governments having forecasted our population to grow by over 3.4 million people over the next 20 years. If you are counting, that's more than the City of Chicago and we are already ahead of projections. Our city planners deal with this growth every day by devising strategies to best accommodate it within their specific municipal context. Come hear the directors of planning for the cities of Dallas, Fort Worth and Plano in a moderated discussion on the opportunities present to best leverage this growth to achieve a more interesting and competitive DFW experience as we compete on the world stage for human and investment capital.

This panel is being hosted by the SMU Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity. As Fellow of the Institute and Program Director of the MA in Sustainability and Development at SMU, Jessie Marshall Zarazaga will be making introductory remarks. This event is free, but is being offered on a limited basis due to venue sizing. Only 70 seats are available.
