CREW Boston

Resiliency & Recovery Through the Lens of an Economic Development Agency

Zoom
Boston, MA

Public

Join us for the Boston Miami Learning Exchange discussion on how resiliency comes in many forms.  At the Miami DDA resiliency equates to supporting small businesses and restaurants as they struggled to stay afloat during the COVID pandemic.  It means bolstering our waterfront to mitigate the long-term effects of sea-level rise and storm surge mitigation and advocating for natural solutions.  It includes transforming our urban core with streetscape projects to attract new businesses, retail, dining and entertainment.  And resilience also means providing mass transit options and multi-modal solutions for those low-income workers who don’t always have the means to commute to and from their jobs.

 

About the Speaker:
In 2015, Neal Schafers joined the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), bringing with him sixteen years of experience creating liveable communities and destinations through research, design, collaboration, and onsite construction management.  The Miami DDA is an economic development agency, and on a daily basis, Neal focuses on enhancing the urban design, placemaking, resilience and mobility in downtown Miami, creating a desirable place to live and work.  Before joining the Miami DDA, Neal worked at the EDSA Planning & Landscape Architecture firm for eight years (Fort Lauderdale, Abu Dhabi, & Shanghai offices) focusing on sustainable waterfront development, wildlife parks, resorts and urban planning.
