Taking the Rust out of ‘Rust Belt’

cityhall2

Our friends at Great Lakes Urban Exchange (aka GLUE) are featured this story in Artvoice, Buffalo’s alternative weekly paper.

GLUE-sters will be in Buffalo this week for their summit, “Great Lakes Metros and the New Opportunity: Remaking Policy and Practice in a Time of Transformation,” on Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19 at Buffalo State College.

“The goal of the conference is threefold: to identify ways to filter federal stimulus money into Great Lakes cities; to develop policy that nurtures the region and helps urban areas grow into sustainable units; and to harness and strengthen a collective Rust Belt voice,” according to the story.

Registration is $25 for both days. For complete program information, visit http://greatlakesmetros.wordpress.com/.
