The Communications Institute will coordinate a forum on the future of growth in the Tucson region of Arizona. The Arizona Daily Star announced the event in an editorial. The purpose of the forum is bring leading national experts on planning, many with extensive expertise in Arizona, to frame the principle issues and objectives that a long term plan for the region must include. The forum is NOT intended to present or develop a specific plan for the region. Local organizations will be invited to participate as will the citizens of the area.
The Presidents of both the University of Arizona and Arizona State University have committed their universities resources and cosponsorship. The Thomas R. Brown Foundations, a partner of The Communications Institute, will be funding the program costs.
One of the principle experts who will address the conference is William Fulton, President of Solimar Research, who has coordinated various research studies on land use in Arizona. Fulton is also as noted author on land use planning, a journalist writing for the Los Angeles Times, and president of California Planning and Development Report.
