Conference on Industrial Land Use

UC BERKELEY. NOVEMBER 2007. Many Bay Area cities are currently trying to decide how much of their industrial land supply to convert to residential and commercial uses. This symposium helped to coordinate the conversation going on in various municipalities by offering a macro perspective on the demand for industrial land. Key academic and professional planning experts discussed the nature of industrial land demand in the 21st century economy, the emerging arrangement of land uses in California's mega-regions, green industry and building issues, and trends in residential development. For this project we have developed a repository of industrial land studies from across North America.

Conference on the Arts and Community – January, 2008

Art and artists have come to be seen as catalysts for neighborhood change, both positive and negative.  This symposium, sponsored by CCI jointly with UCB's Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies, examined what creative venues mean for neighborhood identity and future from the perspective of community-based arts organizations, neighborhood advocates, funders, and the artists themselves.
