Mayor Don Wesely is one of eight mayors who will participate in the 27th meeting of the Mayors' Institute on City Design April 26 through 28 at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
The Mayors' Institute on City Design is an award-winning program which works to ensure that design issues are addressed in the formulation of public policy in American cities. The leadership initiative was established by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1986 and is carried out in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the American Architectural Foundation.
The mayors will present case studies from their own cities and will work with a resource team of design professionals in examining a broad range of design issues that arise from those studies.
"I look forward to working with design and development experts on issues specifically related to Lincoln and its growth, especially the Antelope Valley Project," Mayor Wesely said. "I expect to return with more ideas on how we can best shape our city's future."
