Rethinking Philadelphia: The metropolitan moment

Rethinking Philadelphia: The metropolitan moment

By CAROL TOWARNICKY, Daily News
THIS IS Philadelphia’s moment. Once again. Economic, social and environmental forces – not to mention a new president – are transforming the nation and the world with breathtaking speed.

PlanPhilly and the Daily News have collaborated to bring to you a special section of “Rethinking Philadelphia,” the Daily News’ ongoing series on the future of Philadelphia. The section is titled “Metropolitan Moment,” and is focused on how recent changes in energy consumption, development and government policy could make Philadelphia the place to be for growth in the coming years. The section looks ahead to the big ideas which will transform cities and urban living, and offers a look at what’s happening regionally to make Philadelphia more competitive. You’ll recognize the writing of many PlanPhilly reporters, and opinion pieces from the Daily News editorial staff. Special thanks to Sandra Shea of the Editorial Page of the Daily News for inviting PlanPhilly to contribute content.
