2017 Sandy Springs Conservancy Thought Leaders’ Dinner
On March 30, 2017 the Sandy Springs Conservancy will bring together community leaders, city officials, and developers for our fourth annual “Thought Leaders’ Dinner” to promote the economic and community-building value of green space. It is an invitation only event.
This year’s speaker is Ryan Gravel, an urban planner, designer, and author whose master’s thesis in 1999 was the original vision for the Atlanta Beltline. In his book, “Where We Want to Live,” Gravel investigates the cultural side of infrastructure, describing how its intimate relationship with our way of life can illuminate a brighter path forward for cities. He will explain how Sandy Springs can incorporate ideas that have been so successful in other communities.
Following Gravel’s speech, Mayor Rusty Paul will discuss why connectivity is critical to the economic development of Sandy Springs. He will also share the city’s vision and plans for parks, trails, and greenspace that have emerged from the recent Next 10 comprehensive planning process.
Sponsorships are still available. If interested, please contact email@example.com
