Driving the New Urban Agenda: Desired Outcomes for the Middle Cities Initiative
Desired Outcomes for the Middle Cities Initiative Author(s): Jim Stergios and Maria Ortiz Perez — Publication date: 2009-07-22 Category: Economic Opportunity Abstract: As national discussions continue on the future of cities across the country, an array of stimulus strategies are being offered. These include downsizing older industrialized cities or engaging in large-scale urban renewal projects. Whatever path is taken, Pioneer urges elected officials and policymakers not to fall into old habits of things tried that failed. The challenges our cities face are not new and while stimulus can be helpful, it will not turn back generations of economic change to which cities have not adapted.
