Urban Planning http://publicradiotulsa.org en A Forum Focuses on Retail Development for Downtown Tulsa http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/forum-focuses-retail-development-downtown-tulsa <p>The renaissance in downtown Tulsa continues, but more investment and retail is needed. A forum is held focusing on retail development in the city’s urban core. CBRE Real Estate Broker Caitlin <u>Boewe</u> says smaller homegrown businesses are needed to spur development, then the big guys will follow. She points to Cherry Street and Brookside as examples where that has happened.</p><p>The forum, sponsored by the Tulsa Regional Chamber, follows one held earlier on attracting residential development to the downtown core.</p> Tue, 29 Apr 2014 19:16:59 +0000 Marshall Stewart 58696 at http://publicradiotulsa.org A Forum Focuses on Retail Development for Downtown Tulsa "Hidden Cities: A Memoir of Urban Exploration" (Encore presentation.) http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/hidden-cities-memoir-urban-exploration-encore-presentation <p>(Note: This show originally aired earlier this year.) If you're something of a daredevil, and further, if you've ever wondered what it'd be like to climb to the top of the Brooklyn Bridge --- or wander amid the catacombs beneath Paris, or maybe just take an up-close look at a "ghost station" within the far-reaching New York City subway system --- you might be a latent "urban explorer." Our guest is an active explorer of this sort; Moses Gates, who joins us by phone, is also an urban planner, a licensed New York City tour guide, and an assistant professor of demography at the Pratt Institute Wed, 03 Jul 2013 18:47:18 +0000 Rich Fisher 42096 at http://publicradiotulsa.org "Hidden Cities: A Memoir of Urban Exploration" (Encore presentation.) "The Great Inversion and the Future of the American City" (Encore presentation.) http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/great-inversion-and-future-american-city-encore-presentation <p>On today's ST, which originally aired earlier this year, we speak with the journalist, author, and veteran urbanologist Alan Ehrenhalt, whose books include "The United States of Ambition" and "The Lost City." Ehrenhalt's latest book, "The Great Inversion and the Future of the American City," is now out in paperback. This book argues that the roles and characteristics of America's cities and suburbs are basically changing places with one another --- younger adults and affluent retirees are moving into the city, while immigrants and the less affluent are moving out to the 'burbs.

But getting the folks in a given community to support urban planning goals before they have actually occurred is difficult to do --- mainly because such goals can seem too abstract, too hard to visualize or imagine.
