Join ULI on Thursday, March 4th at 8:30am for a special live and candid conversation as we explore ways to do development differently -- in a more inclusive and equitable way - in the City of St. Petersburg and beyond. Together we will explore how we all can take this current time of reflection about developing more equitable places from a moment to a movement.
Our discussion will center on the example of the historic 22nd Street South District area of St. Petersburg, a former hub of black businesses, homes, and entertainment during the time of segregation. Known as the Deuces, it was the heart of a vibrant and prosperous African-American community on St. Pete’s South Side. Having survived decades of blight caused by the construction of I-275, the heartbeat of this community is still strong and gearing up for a renaissance.
A top line-up of community and development leaders will discuss new paradigms of community engagement, what it takes to develop equitable and inclusive neighborhoods and innovative proposals for planning and zoning that can help unlock shared prosperity.
Registration required to attend. Space is limited. Free to attend and open to all.
