Urban & Regional Planning Speaker Series | Ten Years after the First Pitch: How the Washington Nationals and Nationals Park Have Scored in the Nation’s Capital
The Urban & Regional Planning program with Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies (SCS) is proud to present its Spring 2015 public lecture series, The City Disrupted. Building on last fall’s exploration of large urban investments, the spring lectures will explore short-term transformations in cities driven by the impacts of new technologies, shifting economies, the environment, new social networks, or governance.
Stakeholders from across the university and the community will join us in a series of dialogues that seek to answer the question: Where does community stewardship reside in the disrupted city?
Major League Baseball returned to the Nation’s Capital in 2005 with the inaugural season of the Washington Nationals. Planning, financing, developing and constructing the stadium and the surrounding area that would be the Nationals’ home began the same year and the team moved into its new ballpark in 2008. From the Nationals’ first year, we have accumulated a host of economic and community benefits. Now, 10 years after baseball’s return, how have the Washington Nationals and Nationals Park shaped their community, the Capitol Riverfront, the city, and the region?
Advance RSVP is strongly encouraged in order to ensure your seat. This event is free and open to the public.
