Re:  Retrofitting Suburbia

Dear Mayor:

Dean Jim Hughes of the Bloustein School at Rutgers has asked me to extend his invitation, to all Mayors, to attend this year’s:

Isadore Candeub Memorial Lecture In Planning

Retrofitting Suburbia

December 8, 2009 at 7:30 pm
Special Events Forum, Civic Square Building
33 Livingston Avenue
New Brunswick, NJ 08901

Guest speaker June Williamson, Professor of Architecture at the City College of New York, will discuss the book she co-authored with Ellen Dunham-Jones, Retrofitting Suburbia: Urban Design Solutions for Redesigning Suburbs

Retrofitting Suburbia provides case studies of redeveloped “dead malls,” office parks, garden apartment complexes, and other properties.  The book offers techniques and potential pitfalls involved in transforming some of the least sustainable landscapes into more urban and sustainable places.

I hope to see you there.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
