People are the heart and soul of the green urban development movement. Urban dwellers have turned into smart city experts, transforming their cities into sustainable living spaces which ensure a high-quality of living despite rapidly growing populations. People for smarter cities come together to create grass-roots movements, raise awareness, pool resources, and collectively shrink the impact cities have on the environment. People are the brains behind new concepts and the visionaries that foresee a world that creates no waste. The driving force for change, smart city people are the future.
The San Francisco waterfront is integral to the city’s identity, and its ongoing development is the responsibility of people like Dan Hodapp, Senior Waterfront Planner & Urban Designer, Port of San Francisco. URBAN HUB talks with Dan about his unique experience over the past 24 years.
