Quote of the Day: Ed Walker One of Many Visionaries

Ed Walker interviewed at opening of Patrick Henry Hotel.
"But many towns already have their own version of Ed Walker, said Bruce Katz, a vice president at the Brookings Institution and founding director of the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, which focuses on cities. 'This is happening across the country,' Mr. Katz said.

“'What you’re seeing is a group of vanguard developers and vanguard businesspeople who basically spot a trend and then double down or triple down with their own resources'” to buy property cheap, collaborating with like-minded leaders “'on the placemaking agenda,'” he said.
