Economic Development

Additionally, I have always been interested in how post–industrial cities redevelop. Where I grew up in New England, there are many old mill cities that have successfully revitalized and ones that are still stagnant. The same is obviously true in the Midwest. I came to realize that, as a planner, I could have a positive impact on post–industrial cities, by developing the expertise to help generate new economic activity, remediate contaminated land, and preserve quality housing.
