UCF Urban and Regional Planning Distinguished Lecture Series

*Some attendees may be eligible to receive AICP credits.*
Cities change. Neighborhoods evolve. These are all widely accepted truisms; however, in communities ranging from those that have developed rapidly in the past fifty years to those that had a longer cycle of urbanization, disinvestment, and new development, there is often a struggle to form a shared identity that recognizes the best practices of the existing community, whether it has existed for 20 or 100 years, in forging a connection between the goals and experiences of both long-time residents and newcomers. But there is an opportunity to bridge this gap by recognizing that the existing “authentic community” is (and was) never truly static. By viewing our cities and neighborhoods as constantly evolving places of innovation marked all kinds of development, urban form, and use, and the communities that developed them, a new sense of authenticity can be discovered.
Free and open to public. Seating is limited. RSVP by registering
