Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle and the Urban Land Institute will talk about housing, community values and city planning during the second annual Restoring Community Conference on March 11 at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort and Spa.

The conference, titled “Creating Cities that Protect Private Property, will feature public-sector officials, land-use planners and real estate development professionals who will discuss city- and community-related planning ideas for Anaheim.

“This year’s program will challenge the current thinking in several areas of community planning,” Pringle says. “Our speakers and panelists are experts in their respective fields, and I look forward to hearing their perspectives on how to effectively enhance a city without losing the critical spirit of community.”

Keynote speakers are Joel Kotkin, presidential fellow in Urban Futures at Chapman University; Michael Barone, senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner and contributor to Fox News Channel; and Caitlin Flanagan, award-winning journalist, author, social critic, and a contributing editor and book reviewer at The Atlantic Monthly.

Panel discussions will include the meaning of family and community in the 21st century American city, community values vs. property rights, and housing the modern American family.
