Most people agree that culture is an essential component of urban livability, but quantifying how much and in what ways isn’t easy. Tonight, THE MUNICIPAL ART SOCIETY OF NEW YORK offers New Yorkers involved in placemaking – the approach to developing public spaces that starts by gathering information about users’ and potential users’ needs and aspirations – a chance to hear how some of their counterparts have met the measurement challenge. CAROL COLETTA, president of ArtPlace (NYC), moderates a panel of experts from the fields of economic development, urban design, research and real estate. They are JOE CORTRIGHT, president and principal economist of Impresa (Portland, Ore.); KEVIN STOLARICK, research director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the Rotman School of Management (Toronto, ON); HARRIET TREGONING, director of the Washington, D.C., Office of Planning; and SUE MOSEY, president of Midtown Detroit (Detroit, Mich.). The Municipal Art Society is a nonprofit organization committed to making New York more livable through intelligent urban design and planning.
