Think-Tank Report

On March 10 and 12, University City residents took a deep dive into the future. Participants spent two sessions of three hours each crafting a range of plausible future scenarios for the future of University City looking out to 2040.

The scenario planning process provides a method to explore plausible futures and consider the implications of various future scenarios. The Think-Tank sessions aimed to:

  • Deepen the understanding and examination of how external events and local conditions could shape decision-making
  • Identify and understand the key influences, trends, and dynamics that will shape the University City looking out to 2040
  • Create and describe four plausible long-term scenarios for the City
  • Begin exploring alignment around a shared future vision
