From Megaprojects to Strategic Incrementalism: New Perspectives on the Regeneration of America’s Leg
Start Date 02/13/2014
End Date 02/13/2014
Description After decades of decline, America’s older industrial cities like St. Louis or Pittsburgh are showing renewed life and vitality, with new economic engines, transformed downtowns and revitalized neighborhoods. Yet the revival is uneven; many neighborhoods and their residents are being left behind, while some cities, like Flint or Detroit, continue to lose ground. Using the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy’s Policy Focus Report Regenerating America’s Legacy Cities as a springboard, this panel will offer lessons for American cities from both the successes and failures of recent years, proposing an integrated approach to regeneration that replaces a focus on megaprojects with strategic incrementalism, links the development of new export-oriented economic sectors with the physical revitalization of the city, and is grounded in the principles of social equity and a just city, fostering broad public participation and ensuring that all segments of the city’s population benefit from redevelopment and change.
