Urban Issues Symposium

“As urban sprawl pales before high costs and diminished space, some people move toward redevelopment of older urban neighborhoods. Good move – as long as it does not displace poorer current residents. We need jobs to sustain the laborer alongside the technician, the lawyer, stock floor trader, professor, and artist. We must rediscover industry right in the same areas as new urban development occurs. So, we answer sprawl and inner-city dislocation through mixed development.  We think ways must be found to reduce exclusive class, ethnic, and productive sector segregation.”

  Dr. Brad Breems, professor of sociology
