Legacy cities are older, industrial urban areas that have experienced significant population and job loss, resulting in high residential vacancy and diminished service capacity and resources. This session explores renewal. It identifies the powerful obstacles that stand in the way of recovery and suggests strategies for embarking on the path of regeneration through design, infrastructure, land use downtown employment bases, stable neighborhoods, multimodal transportation networks, colleges and universities, local businesses, historic buildings and areas, and arts, cultural, and entertainment facilities, legacy cities have numerous assets that can serve as valuable starting points for change. Bearing the value of such assets in mind, legacy cities must address the realities of population loss and a changing economy, and find new ways of moving forward.
