Transit oriented development
29 April 2014
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
At this event members of the Future Cities Collaborative heard from Californian urban development expert Michael Dieden. Dieden is founder and president of Creative Housing Associates, and has extensive experience in Transit Oriented Development.
Dieden has worked extensively throughout California, particularly in the Los Angeles region, on urban development projects that are national standards in Transit Oriented Development. The aim of his work is to seamlessly build consensus from a range of stakeholders when creating civic spaces and housing, and do so in the most effective and transit-minded way. In addition to Creative Housing Associates, Dieden has extensive experience in the public sector and holds numerous board positions with several urban development organisations.
The knowledge Dieden brought will enable the Future Cities Collaborative to inspire and educate elected leaders and city officials to build and create great cities for New South Wales.
