Mitchell J. Silver, AICP, is the Chief Planning and Economic Development Officer for the Department of City Planning in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is also the current President of the American Planning Association. Since he will be one of the headlining speakers at Center for Planning Excellence’s 2012 Smart Growth Summit, we decided to ask him a few questions relating his experience to issues we face in Louisiana. What we got was sound advice on planning and economic development that would be applicable anywhere in the world.
