Covid-19 struck a blow to America’s cities—streets and subways emptied out, offices and apartments went dark. But the pandemic also proved to be a time of incredible experimentation in urban form. Just witness the stunning rise in outdoor dining and open streets. Despite all the hardship, this past year has given us a chance to think anew about urban planning from the ground up. How should we plan for the post-Covid city? What lessons should we learn from the past year?

Join MI director of state and local policy Michael Hendrix for a discussion with leaders in urban planning and innovation on these questions and more.
