"Needed: Creative and Bold Leadership! How does this affect planners?"
Friday, February 29, 2008 - 10:00am to Friday, February 29, 2008 - 11:30am
  • This forum will focus on the need for creative and bold leadership, particularly in the public sector. Joining us are Steve Clark, President of the Portland Tribune and member of the Oregon Land Use Big Look Task Force, and Tom Hughes, Mayor of the City of Hillsboro. Many believe there is a desperate need for leadership at all levels of government. Our speakers will discuss how this is affecting our quality of life here and how we can recruit, find or train the leaders we need. They will speak about the important role leaders play in planning for livable places, building/rebuilding infrastructure, preserving open spaces and making it possible for future generations to thrive and grow.


Three additional forums planned for spring term will consider sustainability, infrastructure and land use choices facing Oregon. All forums will be webcast live and archived for future viewing. Our expectation is that each event will stimulate spirited conversation, focus our expectations on the role of planning in the future and provide students, faculty and others attending with new insights.
