A 10 Year Reflection on the Williams Administration's Development Legacy
Thursday, March 1, 2018
GW Textile Museum
When Mayor Tony Williams took office in 1999, he and other city leaders outlined an ambitious development agenda for D.C. Their “Vision for Growing an Inclusive City” outlined broad goals such as preserving and creating mixed-income neighborhoods, encouraging development of new housing to support 100,000 new residents, and reducing barriers to opportunity across race, education, income and geography. Ten years after the Williams’ Administration, Tom Sherwood, a local news expert, will moderate a conversation with the former mayor, Aakash Thakkar from developer EYA, and LISC Deputy Director Ramon Jacobson. We discuss the development choices of his administration: what worked, what didn't and why."
