San Diego’s new Planning Director William Fulton—a nationally recognized planner, lecturer, author, and senior fellow at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy—will lead a planning studio for USC graduate students in spring 2014. The studio will focus on revitalizing the Fairmont corridor between University Avenue and El Cajon Boulevard. Together with Fulton, students will examine the potential role of streetscape and infrastructure investments in connecting the City Heights town square to the new YMCA and catalyzing private investment.
The Sol Price Center for Social Innovation-sponsored planning studio enables Master of Planning students to work with extraordinary leaders to apply their coursework concepts in crafting solutions to current real-world problems.
