About the Show

The way we live is influenced by factors we are often only barely aware of. Take land use, for instance. Few of us think about us. Fewer still understand how it works and how it is influenced.

But that's not the case with our guests this week. Robert Puentes is a fellow with the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program, specializing in policy options for older suburban America and transportation and infrastructure. Prior to joining Brookings, Rob was the director of infrastructure programs at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America.

Katherine Perez is Vice President of Development at Forest City Development, where her focus is on transit oriented development and development in emerging communities. Katherine is a professional transportation planner with experience in national transportation policy, regional planning and local government. Previously she worked as Deputy to the Mayor of Pasadena, California.

Development and land use are our topics this week on Smart City.
