Moderated  by Ronald O. Loveridge, Ph.D.

This year’s historical symposium will explore the subject of new urbanism and traditional walkable communities. We will take a look at how walkable communities gave way to auto-dependent development and how new urbanism has stimulated a reemergence of walkable streets and neighborhoods in our present-day cities. Please join our select panel of experts and historians as they guide us into the past and help us understand how traditional walkable communities are once again flourishing in the Inland Empire.
