The stakes for cities couldn’t be higher. Recovery won’t be uniform — some communities will bounce back more quickly than others, and pockets of growth will exist alongside sustained economic contraction.
Experts from Better Cities Project and Pacific Legal Foundation will present practical recommendations for getting America’s cities back on track — and better than ever.
For cities to thrive, leaders need the tools and knowledge to make informed, innovative decisions. The policies suggested during this program can be a foundation, not just for getting back to normal, but for communities to flourish for years.
No dry white papers or solutions that would take years to implement — this program is all about policies cities can enact quickly for maximum impact. Legal, economic, and policy experts will present solutions in:
Rebounding from the COVID-19 crisis requires great private investments alongside public efforts to restore economic vitality.
A regulatory environment friendly to business creation and job growth will be central to local economic recovery for most cities.
Transparency in government is important, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
