Culture is an essential component of urban livability, but quantifying how much and in what ways isn’t easy. In a panel discussion, the Municipal Art Society will offer New Yorkers involved in placemaking 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, OR)
  • Kevin Stolarick, research director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the Rotman School of Management (Toronto, ON)
  • Harriet Tregoning, director of the Washington, DC, Office of Planning
  • Sue Mosey, president of Midtown Detroit (Detroit, MI).
