KC Area Development Council

Joel Kotkin and Richard Florida bring their unique perspectives on urban and suburban development to the Kansas City Area Development Council's Annual Meeting on November 4, 2016.

They discuss issues facing most cities today, including economic expansion, transportation, cultural environments, the millennial generation, infrastructure, job growth, population, competitive regions and strategies to develop upcoming hot spots like Kansas City, Missouri.

Joel Kotkin says, "The federal government should go to Kansas City and other cities like it and say 'here's a bunch of money, you figure out how to do it.' Don't tell us how to do it because it may not fit our model."

While Richard Florida addresses the changing lifestyle trends, "I do see this preference for a new kind of lifestyle that is much more blended. And it's what urbanists have always talked about."

Watch the video above to hear a short recap of their provocative views on the future of development.
