Round Table on Center Cities

During the Council discussion on safety last week, Dr. Anthony Tomazinis announced that his department, city and regional planning at GSFA, will have a year-long series of round-table discussions on the declining fortunes of center citieswith Philadelphia as a case in point. The program was created in partnership with other departments, adjacent universities and leading professionals in the field.
