Urban Studio Hosting Mayors’ Institute on City Design

The Urban Studio hosted the Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD) South Regional Session on February 15–17.  MICD is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and U.S. Conference of Mayors.  The Regional Session in Birmingham was attended by mayors from around the country and helped teach the value of good city design in context of confronting challenges faced by cities. In the years since MICD’s inception in 1986, nearly 900 mayors, governors and members of Congress have been involved in the initiative.
