Redlands Forum Seeks Vision for City’s Prosperity

Panel Features Esri President Jack Dangermond and Community Leaders

Wednesday, 17 November 2010,5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Esri president Jack Dangermond and several leaders from the City of Redlands, California, will be joining together for a panel discussion that seeks to forge a vision for making the city an even better place to live.

University and K–12 school leaders, city government staff, police, and conservationists will participate in the forum moderated by Dangermond. Topics will include current city issues; the many facets that make Redlands special; and plans for future preservation, sustainability, and continued prosperity. Panelists will bring both strategic and practical ideas from their respective fields that we as a community can consider to truly distinguish and enrich our town.

The ultimate goal is to take the ideas generated from the forum and apply them to the GeoDesign process for improving the city. Based on concepts found in Ian McHarg’s seminal Design With Nature, GeoDesign integrates geographic science with design, resulting in a systematic methodology for geographic planning and decision making. This gives architects, urban planners, and others, the geographic information and analysis they need to design well.

Redlands Forum presentations are sponsored by Esri and the University of Redlands through the university’s Town & Gown organization.
