I’m highly interested in the politics surrounding good city planning. How can governments deliver better communities and quality of life through smarter infrastructure decisions? How do we increase supply of affordable housing and support for small family businesses that are such a critical part of a city’s economy? At CEPT, I could take advantage of the lecture series which bring in thinkers who are looking at community development issues through interesting and unusual lenses. I’m also eager to get more acquainted with CEPT’s research centers on equity, water, land policy and transport.
