The Underline: Leveraging Leftover Land

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Once you develop an eye for opportunity, your experience of the city is forever changed.  In the case of Meg Daly, Founder of Friends of The Underline in Miami, Florida, her light-bulb moment came after an unfortunate bike accident that resulted in two broken arms.  Unable to drive—a challenge in itself in car-centric Miami—Meg found herself walking underneath the city’s elevated train, where she discovered 10 miles of transformative opportunity for new found green space, trails, and art.  Find out how she has moved from incorporation to implementation in less than two years (and won MAS’s Pitching the City ideas contest along the way!) and how she has provided a template for other cities to leverage leftover land.
