The Power of Uniqueness, A Community Discussion

Wednesday, April 19, 2017
7:00 PM ~ Lily Reid Holt Chapel, Lake Forest College Middle Campus

Join the Preservation Foundation and The City of Lake Forest for a candid discussion moderated by Ed McMahon, Senior Fellow at the Urban Land Institute, Washington D.C. Ed is known for his powerful TED Talks and his work in sustainable development and historic preservation.  He argues persuasively that distinctiveness is the key to attracting residents and building a community's economy. Ed will present an objective look at what we have that is special and unique in Lake Forest and how to tackle current issues without losing it.  

This discussion will inform the City’s Strategic Plan and will also shed light on the Foundation’s goal to protect compatibility in style and setting, and to create harmony with the larger whole of Lake Forest.

Additionally, here is a link to one of his current talks on community sustainability:
