Listen 00:48:45

Guests: Carrie Gray, Laura Semmelroth, David Fierabend, John Micek

How do you change a city? Today on Radio Times, we explore urban revitalization through design and creative place-making. We’ll be joined by CARRIE GRAY and LAURA SEMMELROTH of the Wilmington Renaissance Corporation. They’ll discuss plans for a Creative District in Wilmington, Delaware that will transform a neighborhood through the growth and support of the creative community. We’ll also be joined by DAVID FIERABEND of the Groundswell Design Group, who has worked on several design and architecture projects – including beer gardens, pocket parks, and waterfront revamps – in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas that have changed the feel of the city. Then we’ll hear from JOHN MICEK of The Patriot-News and PennLive about the latest news on the Pennsylvania budget deliberations, including an analysis of Governor Tom Wolf’s historic veto of the entire budget.
