Congress for the New Urbanism is launching The Role of Universities in Urban Design and Innovation, which is focused on the influence of universities on the development of our community. These are open public discussions held at P.J. Dolan’s at 2836 E. Bearss Avenue, Tampa. The first discussion in September focused on USF’s influence on our economy, our politics, and our physical environment. Two more discussions are scheduled as follows.
#2 – Town and Gown: Getting Along and Prospering – Nov 18, 2014
What is the relationship like between universities and their host cities? How are they changing?
#3 – The Connected Future of USF and North Tampa? – Jan 13, 2015
How do we achieve our vision? How can the relationship between USF and its current/future partners with surrounding local government and community organization help to reshape the greater North Tampa area?
