The Road To Revitalization

Economic Inclusion and America's Legacy Cities
By Lincoln Institute Staff, January 18, 2021

Even before the COVID-19 crisis, many of America’s postindustrial cities, also known as legacy cities, struggled with economic stagnation, poverty, and deep inequality. Yet, some of these cities were on a path to a brighter future, thanks to proven strategies for equitable regeneration. 

The future of legacy cities is the topic of this recorded discussion with George W. “Mac” McCarthy, president and CEO of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and Chantel M. Rush, managing director of the Kresge Foundation’s American Cities Program, moderated by Dan Moulthrop, CEO of the City Club of Cleveland.

The discussion is the first in a series of virtual events cohosted by the Lincoln Institute and the City Club of Cleveland this year. Join the Lincoln Institute’s legacy cities mailing list to receive notifications of future events, or email to suggest topics.
