But, is this the right policy to help guide future growth in the nation’s capital? Join a panel of international experts as they consider the role governments play in managing building height in capital cities worldwide and examine strategies to balance city character and economic vitality in other capital cities. Presented in partnership with the National Capital Planning Commission.
