How do you plan a great city? That’s the subject Toni Griffin will tackle as a keynote speaker on October 16.

Griffin's most recent work includes leading Detroit Future City in Detroit. She did a Ted Talk on that project.

Griffin previously worked as the director of community development for Newark, vice president and director of design for the Anacostia Waterfront Corp. in Washington, D.C.; and deputy director for revitalization and neighborhood planning for the D.C. Office of Planning.

This is the first in a series of “spotlights” on our speakers for our upcoming October 16 conference, NJ Spotlight On Cities. You can see the full agenda and buy tickets online.
