Legacy Cities Design Initiative
The Legacy City Design Initiative is a network that shares innovative design practices being used to revitalize Legacy Cities. It connects professionals working in Legacy Cities, shares information about how projects are successfully designed and implemented, hosts convenings, advocates for innovative design solutions, and develops new practice solutions through design research and pilot project collaborations.
The current focus is on strategies that address neigborhood vacancy as well as on design for new multi-purose infrastructure systems. Co-founded by the American Assembly, the project is now led by the J Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City. The American Assembly continues to be an active partner in advancing the Legacy City Design Initiative.

The Assembly cosponsored the 2013 Bruner Loeb Forum under the theme "Legacy City Design," as part of the Legacy Cities Design Initiative, a joint project of The American Assembly and J Max Bond Center.
