Post Date:10/22/2019 10:00 AM

Registration for the next PLANIT GSO Speaker Series featuring former US Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary, Henry Cisneros, is noon on Wednesday, October 22. The event is scheduled from 11:30 am to 1 pm, Wednesday, October 30 at the Cadillac Service Garage, 304 E. Market St.

Cisneros will talk about how communities like Greensboro can expand opportunities for more of their residents and boost economic expansion. His 2017 book about this topic, “Building Equitable Cities: How to Drive Economic Mobility and Regional Growth,” provides real-world examples of both place-based and people-based strategies that are being used successfully across the country.

Cost is $20 and includes lunch. Parking is limited at the venue and in the surrounding area. The Church Street Parking Deck, 215 N. Church St., will be comped for all attendees.

Cisneros’ Greensboro appearances are part of PLANIT GSO’s series of public conversations about how the city should grow and develop. City Planning Department staff are using community input as they update Greensboro’s 15-year-old Comprehensive Plan, which is a road map that guides a city’s investments and growth for the next 20 years.

Cisneros will also speak at a free event from 5:30-6:30 pm, Tuesday, October 29 at the Greensboro History Museum, 130 Summit Ave.
