Friends of MICD,
Though most states have begun rolling back their lockdown measures, we're approaching a Memorial Day weekend with few of the traditional markers in store. Instead, all eyes are on the cities that have started the daunting process of carefully reopening businesses and reimagining the role of public space.
I'm excited to share this week's installment of our "Talk with a Mayor" series below. Read on to hear how Mayor Rick Kriseman is tackling these challenges head-on (and enjoy a sneak preview of St. Pete's new pier — a 26-acre once-in-a-generation investment in public space, which will be an incredible asset despite its delayed grand opening).
