What's happening throughout the region? NCPC invites planners and design aficionados to a casual summertime gathering to talk about regionalism in the National Capital area. There will be nine rapid-fire presentations on planning topics of personal or professional interest. Presenters will have seven minutes and 21 slides to talk. Presentations will be highly visual. No paragraphs, bullet points, and planning jargon - guaranteed!

Scheduled presentations include:

  • The Evolution of Arlington’s Urban Villages
    Robert Brosnan, Arlington County
  • Transforming Tysons: From Edge City to Livable Urban Center
    Linda Hollis, Fairfax County
  • Arlington County's Community Energy Plan:
