Posted Aug 10

Support Waller Creek Conservancy Panels!

PanelPicker online voting is now open, allowing our community to vote (and comment) on the ideas you believe are the most creative, innovative and appropriate for 2018! Cast your vote for these two panels including Waller Creek Conservancy:

High Line Network: Next-Gen Parks + Infrastructure
In the last decade, projects like the High Line in NYC and the 606 in Chicago transformed how we think about public space. There’s now a movement in cities across the world to reimagine disused infrastructure into vibrant urban landscapes. Hear from leaders of next-gen projects that are part of the High Line Network, which helps projects learn from each other. See how they’re tackling a new set of urban challenges through equitable development, resilience strategies, digital engagement and more.
