Neighborhoods in America's Legacy Cities: A Dialogue in Detroit


We invite you to register as a participant for the "Neighborhoods in America's Legacy Cities: A Dialogue in Detroit" conference, which is being cosponsored by The Legacy City Partnership, held between September 13-16, 2016.  

The conference will bring together professionals, decision-makers and academics from US Legacy Cities, where long-term population loss and economic restructuring present difficult challenges for the future of astounding historic resources and significant cultural heritage.  The conference will focus on the following themes: "Preservation as a Tool," "Legacy Cities Today and Tomorrow," and "Neighborhood Transformation and Preservation and Public Health."  Expert panel discussions will explore innovative work happening in these areas, while a range of exciting sessions will dive deeper into groundbreaking projects that are revitalizing Legacy Cities throughout the country.  The event will feature a breakout session with a discussion by The Assembly affiliates Paul Brophy, Alan Mallach and Cara Bertron, authors of the upcoming volume On the Edge: America’s Middle Neighborhoodsby The Assembly and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and edited by Paul C. Brophy.
