BG Selected for Architectural Help

By  | 

Bowling Green's planning efforts will receive a free and fresh new approach.

Today Mayor Elaine Walker announced the city has been selected as one of 6 cities for the "Mayors' Institute of City Design."

The program pairs developing cities with some top architectural minds for some free design and planning work.

The mayor will travel to Tulane University's School of Architecture in November for a two-day session with students and professors.

"It's an excellent opportunity for BG to take advantage of some of the finest minds in architectural design, at no cost to us. And to get some new exciting ideas for some of the things we're working on for the future," Walker said.

Walker says she plans to focus on a downtown or riverfront redevelopment project.
