Cities - The Engines of Economic ProsperityCities drive growth.Starting with a strong downtown core, growth radiates outward to the suburbs, to the Province and to the region. Join us as we present Carol Coletta, President and CEO of the organization CEO for Cities. Carol, a respected authority on urban issues, will share her insights into what it takes for cities to succeed and prosper. Carol will speak to:
The importance of cities and how they are the engines of economic prosperity;
How the power of a strong and vibrant downtown resonates throughout the entire region;
The effect of investing more broadly in key assets such as the downtown; and,
The top few things we should focus on to remain competitive and continue to grow as a region.
Carol has devoted her life to understanding what it takes to make cities succeed – a passion she has pursued as executive director of the Mayors' Institute on City Design, and as a host of the nationally syndicated public radio show Smart City.
