Lunch with Alexandria:

Mayor Silberberg and City Manager Jinks

Postponed

Program

Originally scheduled for Wednesday, January 25, this event has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.

On Wednesday, January 25, please join NAIOP Northern Virginia for Lunch with ... Allison Silberberg, Mayor of Alexandria, and Mark Jinks, City Manager of Alexandria. Ms. Silberberg was elected Mayor in November of 2015 and is finishing her first year in office. Prior to becoming Mayor, she served one term on the Alexandria City Council as Vice Mayor. She has over 20 years of experience in community leadership and public service having worked on Capitol Hill and in the non-profit community. Mark Jinks joined the city government in 1999 as the city's Chief Financial Officer. Ten years later he was appointed Deputy City Manager with responsibility for a variety of aspects of city government including land use planning, zoning, historic preservation, transportation, environmental protection, code administration, and affordable housing. Ultimately he was appointed City Manager in 2015.

Alexandria has long enjoyed a solid economy with steady economic growth. 2017 will see the arrival of the National Science Foundation in Eisenhower East and new commercial development around the future Potomac Yard Metro. At the same time challenges with funding for Metro, stormwater capacity and combined stormwater-sanitary systems are challenging the City's ledgers. As the City enters budget discussions for FY2018 don't miss this opportunity to hear from the Mayor and City Manager about the financial and program challenges and how they plan to achieve the city's priorities for 2017.

As always, our Lunch with ... programs are for NAIOP members only.

CELEBRATION OF INNOVATION IN DEVELOPMENT SERIES

The Impact of Culture on Design

Program

Each urban environment is unique. Seminal elements include land use, climate, geography, topography, demographics, cost of living, transportation modalities, history and culture. What else makes cities unique? How do architecture and design, life styles, neighborhoods, ethnicity, race and age of people, and building stock contribute to what gives a city its particular character? How do cities evolve and become what they are today, and where are they headed? How did disruption and innovation, history and migration influence the way cities and their communities are formed and thrive or change or wither? How does a city's past make its future come alive? What role does imagination play?

In this three-part seminar, NAIOP Northern Virginia will explore the contribution of design to the evolution of urban environments, and the impact it has on culture and community. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Why design matters
  • Educating and engaging the public so that they become advocates for design
  • "Smart Growth" development

Join NAIOP Northern Virginia on February 9, March 1 and March 23 when we will explore how culture, development and design contribute to the evolution of communities.

Session I: Thursday, February 9, 2017

Our speakers will explore the contribution of history and culture to design from a national perspective with a focus on Chicago, the birthplace of modern architecture, and Oregon, a leader in "Smart Growth" development and regional land use and transportation planning.

Speakers

Roger K. Lewis, FAIA, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and Columnist, "Shaping the City," The Washington Post"
Jen Masengarb, Director of Interpretation and Research, Chicago Architecture Foundation
Gerard C.S. Mildner, Ph.D., Academic Director, Center for Real Estate and Associate Professor of Real Estate, Portland State University

Moderator

Michael Klein, Managing Director and Principal, Penzance

Session II: Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Representatives from Northern Virginia jurisdictions will continue the discussion from Session I and contribute a regional perspective on design, culture and the growth of communities. You will learn about what is being done locally to elevate and celebrate local communities. The panel will address efforts to promote design and development excellence in order to encourage more of it and to positively impact job growth and retention.

Speakers

Barbara Byron, Director, Fairfax County Office of Community Revitalization
Victor Hoskins, Director, Arlington Economic Development
Karl Moritz, Director of Planning and Zoning, City of Alexandria
Rebecca Horner, Assistant Director, Planning Office, Prince William County

Session III: Thursday, March 23, 2017

Representatives of development community companies which have a history of successfully helping communities evolve locally and globally will use examples of their projects to illustrate the impact of culture and design on their projects. The innovation and differentiation of development projects is more important than ever. How does the culture of a region play a part in this differentiation? Panelists will also consider the topics discussed in the first two sessions and offer their thoughts on what may or may not work for future projects.
