national urban planning guru applauds our roadmap for economic resilience
The Bay Area Council Economic Institute’s Roadmap for Economic Resilience got a nod this week from one of the top urban planning thinkers in the country. In a commentary that appeared in the Atlantic Monthly’s CityLab blog, Richard Florida highlighted the innovative and sometimes disruptive solutions presented in the report.
Said Florida, “….the report should be applauded for addressing deepening urban challenges facing the Bay Area. It is heartening to see a regional development body calling for this type of reform. As these challenges heighten, other superstar cities and tech hubs will have to do the same.”
