Planning in the New Era - Defining Public Private Relationships
The Urban Planning Coalition of San Jose State University is hosting its annual symposium and will showcase a discussion on collaboration building between the public sector, private sector, and local communities for urban development, as their symbiotic relationship will be increasingly important as cities navigate a new landscape of severe fiscal constraints and fundamental demographic shifts.
Redefining the partnership between public and private sectors is one method by which planners can promote urban growth and economic and community development. To do so, planners need to begin a dialogue and look at ways planning can add value to the development process while ensuring that new initiatives are sustainable and equitable. Compounding matters, the traditional relationship between planning and development no longer exists. As funding for development and redevelopment increasingly arises from the private sector, a new form of public and private relationships is necessary.
In order to facilitate a healthy conversation, this symposium will feature elected officials and prominent figures in both the private and public/non-profit sectors. A keynote speech, a plenary panelist, and focused panelist discussions will debate the new definition of partnerships and its application to the field of planning.
Lunch is provided and included with admission.
