Greater downtown Chattanooga was an early leader in downtown revitalization, especially for cities with a population under 1 million. Chattanooga's revitalization began in the 1980s, exemplified by the first strategic plan in 1987, place management, one-of-a-kind civic facilities (such as the world’s largest freshwater aquarium, a baseball & football stadium, and battery powered free circulator), all of which vastly increased development. In this panel, the downtown place manager, developers and affordable housing developer will share their future strategies.  They will then ask longtime Chattanooga advisor, Christopher B. Leinberger, how social equity can be further enhanced in downtown Chattanooga.
