cityLAB recently received a letter from Eric Ustation, Assistant to the Mayor of Riverside, California.
Riverside, dubbed the City of Arts and Innovation, is looking for new ways to empower their local neighborhoods. Mayor Loveridge heard about our 6% Place experiment at a National League of Cities meeting and was intrigued by the concept. On the Mayor’s website residents are invited to send in their great ideas to further their aim for the city to “Seize its own Destiny” and direct their community toward becoming more innovative. An important part of cityLAB’s work is to connect with forward-thinking communities like Riverside, and to share the blueprint for the 6% place. We’re looking forward to working with Mayor Loveridge and with many other future sister cities across the country.
