*ULI Seattle - Green Infrastructure: Thinking Beyond the Grid* Keynote
Speaker: Jonathan F.P. Rose, President, Jonathan Rose Companies LLC

April 29, 2009
7:00 - 9:00 AM
Renaissance Seattle Hotel
515 Madison Street, Madison Ballroom, Seattle, WA http://seattle.uli.org/

Our region faces the same challenge that communities across the country
face: how to grow without sacrificing the natural, historic, and cultural
features that improve our quality of life and bolster the economy.

Green infrastructure represents a reorientation from conventional thinking
to smarter and lower-impact investments that provide multiple benefits, add
value to development, and enhance the overall quality of life of our
communities, This informative session will inspire us to take a new look at
our regional opportunities by thinking beyond the grid.

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority is looking to green
infrastructure as the answer "to achieve sustainability, create more livable
communities, and maintain [its] global economic dominance."
