There’s still time to register for the Innovative Cities Conference coming up at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center on June 17, 18 & 19. Featured speakers include White House official Adolfo Carrion and National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis. Why would folks from Lowell or the Merrimack Valley want to attend? To find out how to make places like Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, and Newburyport better places to live, work, and enjoy themselves.
Urban experts from Asheville, N.C.; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Milwaukee, Wis.; Portland, Oregon; and Belfast, Northern Ireland, as well as from Lowell will be speaking about what makes their cities work well.
The Saturday morning hearing on urban policy is free; US Rep Tsongas will chair the forum, sponsored by the Northeast-Midwest Institute, a think tank supporting members of Congress from the NE-MW Coalition.
