Influx and Exodus: Two Conversations on Urban Density

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

The Van Alen Institute and the World Policy Institute co-hosted "Influx and Exodus: Two Conversations on Urban Density" panel. Back-to-back panel discussions focused on how city infrastructure and policy can be designed to keep pace with the demographic shifts that accompany rapid economic growth or decline.  

Greg Lindsay, a senior fellow at World Policy Institute and a director of its Emergent Cities Project, moderated both discussions. The first part "Exodus," featured Alan Mallach, senior fellow at Center for Community Progress; Nadine Maleh, a director at Inspiring Places. The panelists discussed the best methods for repurposing aging infrastructure and adapting the delivery of fundamental services to the residents living in legacy cities.
