Event description

Description

APA-MA and the Massachusetts Association of Planning Directors are excited to kickoff The Planners' Movie and Meet Up with a screening of "Citizen Jane - Battle for the City." Come celebrate the life and legacy of Jane Jacobs with your planning friends and colleagues at the beautiful Capitol Theatre in Arlington.

"Citizen Jane---Battle for the City" retraces the battles for the city, personified by Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses, as urbanization moves to the very front of the global agenda. This movie will examine the city of today through the eyes of one of its greatest champions, who has offered so much insight and wisdom about the dizzying array of urban issues facing us. Following the film will be a facilitated discussion amongst attendees.

We are thrilled to announce our discussion panel will be led by Anthony Flint! As you may know, Mr. Flint is a fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and the author of "Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York's Master Builder and Transformed the American City".
