Western Places/Western Spaces: Building Fair & Resilient Communities
Across the West, communities large and small are grappling with change. Our largest cities are thriving, but gentrification is making urban living unaffordable for many. As suburban communities transition towards more compact development and public transit, they are starting to lose the small town appeal that attracted so many. Rural communities struggle to balance their wild and rustic roots in the face of a changing economy. Set against a backdrop of increased risks associated with long-term drought, violent storms, flooding, and wildfire, the West is embracing its latest challenges.

The 2015 RMLUI Conference will focus on the innovative ways cities and towns across the West are building more resilient, equitable, and vital communities. This year’s theme addresses how we can meet the many challenges of the future — including threats posed by climate change, a modern economy, and demographic shifts — while better addressing issues of social and environmental justice. We’ll also explore the cutting edge tools, business models, and technologies that are helping planners, developers, and communities move forward in a smarter way.
