In this video, panelists answer the following questions (3)What are some of the issues and problems that cities are facing today? Which of these are similar to what urban renewal planners were dealing with? Which are different? Which are products of urban renewal? (00:00-08:03). Questions were then opened to the audience. (A) Can you talk a little more about the notion of you can’t trust the private sector to protect the public interest shaped the way urban renewal and planning, in general, happened during the [Edward] Logue [urban planner] period and Urban Renewal in New London? (08:12-11:38) (B) Do you believe that too much of the discourse and modern critique surrounding urban renewal exists in an elitist echo chamber and whether the manner of conversation with which we discuss urban renewal needs to further cross socio-economic boundaries to avoid perpetuating the very problems that we studied? (11:41-22:24). Also includes a reflection by an audience member on the lack of engagement with the public engagement. (22:25-23:45)
