“The mayors that were selected for this session work really hard for their cities and they need all the help they can get, especially help with city design. This program is vital and the more mayors it reaches, the better America will be. I remember how important America’s mayors are [after attending the Institute] and how we as city designers need to be more engaged with them in our local communities and be more supportive of mayors nationally.”
— Marcy McInelly, Urbsworks
