Webinar: Just Suburbs: Creating Equitable Opportunities in Suburban Development

A Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network event
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 1:00pm EDT

The Coronavirus has caused us to rethink many things across our society, including how and where we live and work. Our changing demographics and economy were affecting how we view cities and suburbs before the pandemic. These changes present growing challenges to our suburbs.

The Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network hosted this webinar on Thursday, July 9, with Jason Beske and David Dixon, editors of Suburban Remix: Creating the Next Generation of Urban Places. They were joined by Dr. Eric Anthony Johnson, Chief of Economic Development, Housing and Neighborhood Services for the City of Dallas, Texas to examine how suburbs can begin to prepare themselves to become communities where the demographic mix presents the opportunity for everyone to thrive.
