SPIA is very pleased to announce that Gabe Klein, a co-founder of CityFi and former Commissioner of the Chicago and Washington DC Departments of Transportation, will join us for the next Virginia Tech NCR Science, Technology, Innovation & Policy Leadership Series Lecture, to be held Tuesday, March 7th at the Virginia Tech Research Center–Arlington.
Gabe will discuss the larger macro trends in society, address process innovation and governance, and talk about how city leaders are re-organizing their urban systems to be synergistic vs. at odds with one another and the cities goals. High return public-private partnerships, active transportation, and enhanced public space projects all play a role in the ideal city of the future.
