The replacement of the I-81 viaduct in Syracuse provides new housing and economic development opportunities in neighborhoods adjacent to the highway. Charting Renewal will focus on urban and architectural design as they relate to issues of social and economic justice. Among the critical questions that will be addressed: What makes a good community? What is the relationship between public space and private development? How does good design contribute to the success of neighborhoods and the people who live there? What can we learn from successful housing models elsewhere?
This is the first of three planned events addressing housing issues in Syracuse and will provide an opportunity for citizens to question experts whose experience and knowledge are shaped by the kinds of challenges facing Syracuse and other comparable cities in the U.S.
