Many Bay Area cities are currently trying to decide how much of their industrial land supply to convert to residential and commercial uses. This symposium will revisit the issue of industrial land from a local, regional, national, and global perspective. Academic and professional planning experts will discuss the nature of industrial land demand in the 21st century economy, the emerging arrangement of land uses in the region, green industry issues, trends in residential development, and Bay Area battles--past and present--over industrial land.
9:30 - 10 am: Framing the Issues: Why should we care about industrial land?
12 - 1 pm: Lunch
1 - 2:30 pm: Panel: How should we make decisions about industrial land?
2:30 - 3:30 pm: Closing panel: Reflections from the ivory tower
Seaborg Room of The Faculty Club at the University of California, Berkeley.
