Transit oriented development
29 April 2014
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
The Future Cities Collaborative welcomes Californian urban development expert, Michael Dieden, to the United States Studies Centre on 29 April. Michael, founder and president of Creative Housing Associates, has extensive experience in Transit Oriented Development and will bring his expertise and advice to the Collaborative members.
Michael 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, Michael has extensive experience in the public sector and holds numerous board positions with several urban development organisations.
The knowledge Michael brings 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.
This event is by invitation only. More information about the Future Cities Collaborative is available from futurecities.org.au.
