Meeting of the Minds 2015 Announcement and Next Steps
Located in the San Francisco Bay Area in the East Bay, Richmond will serve as the location for Meeting of the Minds 2015. Like Detroit, Richmond is at a crossroads and is implementing cutting-edge urban revitalization strategies and policies including the use of eminent domain to bail out underwater mortgages, a new crime reduction strategy, and the nation‘s first community choice aggregation program. It‘s also the future site of Lawrence Labs and UC Berkeley‘s next campus. The Meeting will take place at the Craneway Pavilion – an adaptive reuse project on the water‘s edge. Formerly a Ford factory plant, it has won numerous sustainability awards and embodies the Meeting of the Minds mission.
