Following the 4:30pm walking tour of the Midtown community, this esteemed panel discussion will focus on “resilient urbanism” pertaining to the communities of Bradburn, Midtown & Aria – all innovative for their time.  Resilient urbanism is a collaboration among multiple disciplines that explores a wide spectrum of topics related to what makes resilience in urban contexts unique: housing and land challenges, equity, density, governance, construction markets, place-making, and other characteristics related to the unpredictable and ever-changing urban environment.  The provocative discussion will further highlight a variety of contexts, time frames, and scales directly related to these three progressive Colorado neighborhoods.
