The Politics of Place: People, Planning, and Possibilities – Emergent Savannah

June 13, 2016

On Monday, June 13, Harold Yellin will be part of Emergent Savannah’s ongoing series “Monday Means Community” at the Sentient Bean. Mary Landers will moderate a discussion with Harold, Tom Thomson (Executive Director of the MPC), Kevin Klinkenberg (Executive Director of the SDRA), and Ryan Madson (Professor of Architecture and Urban Design). The discussion will look at the six corridors primed for development and the role of the citizen in the process, and ask what pressures and opportunities Savannah’s built environment faces and how that relates to the overall vision for Savannah. The event starts at 7:00 pm, arrive early for a seat.
