Building Vibrant Cities and Healthy Communities 

Join us for the 2019 Regional Livability Solutions forum featuring special guest Gil Peñalosa, Urban Planner and Founder of 8 80 Cities, an international non-profit organization centered on a simple but powerful philosophy: if we make our cities and communities work well for an 8 year old and an 80 year old, then it will be great for all people.
