We - the royal "we," you, me, and whomever else cares - fret often about what the future will look like in urban areas like Greater Boston, where more and more people are squeezing into less and less space.
And sometimes even the "faithful" get discouraged when the conversation doesn't advance beyond what we already know: that housing costs are too high, housing options are too few, public transportation will become increasingly crucial to the smooth flow of traffic, and quality jobs aren't being filled quickly enough.
But we try. Part of the fix is to put smart people in close proximity and listen as they share their experiences and give practical theories and strategies to be tested as soon as possible.
To those ends, on Oct. 20, the Corcoran Center for Real Estate and Urban Action
at Boston College, will host a symposium and reception titled "Innovation, Urbanization and the Metropolitan Revolution!" for which you can find a link to register here
