If you're a development nerd like me, here's a ton of stuff from the Reinventing Stamford initiative. First is a page from their website chock-full of documents on topics such as proposed and current projects, Stamford's green programs, and the future of the Northeast Corridor. The videos below are from a seminar in Australia where Kip Bergstrom, the executive director of Stamford's Urban Redevelopment Commission, gave a presentation on Stamford's past reinventions and its current status in the state and the region as they relate to "place-making" for Australia's residential college and halls. OK, it's not as exciting as a visit from the President, but it's interesting if you like this kind of stuff.
