MICD 57_Mayor Mike Spano

“I appreciated that your entire program was focused on how to improve every city’s design and livability, and that large, well-funded cities have design issues that can relate to those smaller cities, and the other way around. The mix of large and small was a strength of the session. I appreciated how quickly and easily the [Resource Team] got to know the mayors and how willing they were to talk with us and encourage our learning from them and each other.”
— Salem, OR Mayor Anna Peterson

“I came away realizing that mixed-use housing needs to be our key strategy for downtown development. Take the show on the road!”
