“Mayors have the opportunity to be the lead designers of their cities. They have significant influence on what will go where, what buildings will be torn down or preserved, when and where parks will be built, how residential and commercial neighborhoods are to be restored, and so much more. Attentive mayors will even involve themselves in the smallest details of these decisions to make sure they are just right. With each engagement, they change the composition of the city—and the experience of the citizen.”
— MICD Founder and Former Charleston, SC Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr.
