Density by Design: Data and Decisions about Community Growth

 

Thursday, September 24 | 8:30am-11:30am

DePaul School of Public Service, 14 East Jackson Blvd., Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60604

Program:

Join the nationally-recognized principal of Urban3, Joseph Minicozzi, for a visually-compelling presentation supporting the financial case for municipal density. Utilizing innovative approaches to both methodology and presentation, Urban 3 simplifies complex information to clearly communicate the direct connection between the physical design of cities and their fiscal sustainability. Their work has successfully united diverse stakeholders across the US and Canada in meaningful conversations about the growth of their communities. Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to take a self-directed “In-House Field Trip” to several local municipal sites. Representatives from each municipality will be on hand to lead small group discussions in congruent workshops exploring density scenarios within our regional context. MDRN and CNU Illinois members, as well as non-members, are invited to attend.

Green Infrastructure as a Public Health Strategy

 

Thursday, October 22 | 8:30am-11:30am

MCHC, 222 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 1900, Chicago, IL 60606

Program:

Can the way we build our cities actually improve our own physical and mental health? There can be many negative impacts from traditional “grey” infrastructure including: illness induced from contaminated water and air; security-related issues arising from flooding; physical challenges from lack of exercise and lack of access to fresh food options; and even mental health challenges from lack of contact with nature and with others. In contrast, today there is growing awareness that “green” building strategies can not only benefit the environment but can actually positively impact public health as well. The Green Facilitator, Michelle Halle Stern, will share her research linking the built environment with public health. Luke Leung, Director of the Sustainability Engineering Studio at SOM, will discuss how green infrastructure can promote healthier senses. Additionally, Jay Womack, Director of WRD Environmental will present evidence of “Nature Deficit Disorder” and share local built examples of how to combat it. These thought-provoking presentations will be followed by an opportunity for attendees to explore a personal narrative to discover how the built environment can impact human health. USGBC Illinois and CNU Illinois members, as well as non-members, are invited to attend.
