From July 8-13, Regional Plan Association (RPA) hosted an intensive workshop on America 2050 as part of the Rockefeller Foundation's month-long global urban summit, Innovations for an Urban World at their conference center in Bellagio, Italy. The America 2050 workshop convened a small group of distinguished elected officials, planning practitioners, and business leaders who identified steps toward creating a long-term physical and policy framework for America's future growth and development. In preparation for the Summit, RPA prepared and commissioned a series of framing papers on various aspects of the project. The papers can be downloaded here.
