Last week the League presented our Partnership for Place proactive legislative agenda to the legislature’s Talent and Place caucus. The newly formed caucus is a bi-partisan group of legislators seeking to increase awareness about the importance of attracting and retaining talent as well as placemaking.
The caucus tracks nicely with the work the League is doing with the Partnership for Place and our other placemaking work. We look forward to working with those lawmakers on specific legislation advancing the goals of the proactive agenda.
