Participants will be challenged to reconsider and reexamine concepts of urban revitalization from new perspectives while sitting amongst neighbors and new friends.
Opening the series on January 30th is Majora Carter, acclaimed author of Reclaiming Your Community: You Don’t Have to Move out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One.
Majora Carter is a real estate developer, urban revitalization strategy consultant, MacArthur Fellow and Peabody Award winning broadcaster. She's responsible for the creation of numerous economic development, technology inclusion & green-infrastructure projects, policies and job training & placement systems. She is also a lecturer at Princeton University's Keller Center.
She and her teams develop vision, strategies and the type of development that transforms low-status communities into thriving mixed-use local economies.
How would this be applicable to Richland County?
Her approach harnesses capital flows resulting from American re-urbanization to help increase wealth building opportunities across demographics left out of all historic financial tide changes. Majora's work produces long term fiscal benefits for governments, residents, and private real estate developments throughout North America.
