City Scripts Symposia Series: “Stretchy Cities”

When: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Where: Slocum Auditorium, School of Architecture


This year’s “Stretchy Cities” Symposium features a discussion of regional governance and policy, in which local office-holders respond to presentations by leading experts on the designed, built environment. The presentations will initiate a discussion among panel members and the audience about regional urban government and a “stretched” urban landscape. The Symposium will specifically examine the public conversation in the Syracuse area on developing and managing the built environment.

The symposium is the fifth in a series, which examines the intersections of public policy, economics, and spatial practice.

The City Scripts series is co-sponsored by Syracuse University’s School of Architecture and the Campbell Public Affairs Institute within the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and funded in part by the Collaboration for Unprecedented Success and Excellence (CUSE) grant program.
