Helping Communities 
Design Their Futures 



Of all the programs sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, it is hard to 
imagine one that has done more tangible public good than the Mayors' Institute on City 
Design. Since its creation more than 20 years ago, the Institute has graduated more than 
750 mayors, many of whom have returned to their cities with a renewed sense of purpose 
and a newfound belief in the power of design. 

The inspiring results can now be documented. Cities have been reconnected to their 
waterfronts, highways replaced by tree-lined boulevards, new civic buildings well located 
and beautifully designed. Even a short list of this program's many accomplishments 
demonstrates the positive leadership and informed counsel the Mayors' Institute has 
provided to communities across the nation. 

My conversations with the program's alumni, without exception, have yielded 
compelling stories of specific physical outcomes that would not have occurred without the 
inspiration and education offered by the Institute. Some of these are discussed in the pages 
ahead. 

The Arts Endowment is convinced that skillful civic design makes a concrete impact on 
the character of a community and the lives of its citizens. For this reason, we will continue 
our strong support of the Mayors' Institute on City Design as one of the agency's signature 
programs. I am grateful to our partners, the American Architectural Foundation and the 
U.S. Conference of Mayors, for their stewardship of this program. I hope that you will join 
us in helping the Institute bring its powerful message to even more mayors and cities.

"America is defined by its 
cities. And cities are defined 
and made memorable by their 
landmarks, their waterfronts, 
their neighborhoods, their 
great public spaces. No one 
has more influence on a 
city's design than its mayor, 
and that's why the Mayors' 
Institute on City Design is so 
powerful. It brings together 
mayors with designers who 
help them implement their 
vision for their cities in the 
best possible way. That's 
why the U.S. Conference of 
Mayors is such an enthusiastic 
partner in the Mayors' 
Institute." 




Ron Bogle, hon. aia 

President & CEO 

The American Architectural 
Foundation 



"Since 1986, the Mayors' 
Institute has been elevating 
city design as a priority for 
the chief elected officials of 
our cities. We are preparing 
for an era in which design will 
be at the top of the agenda for 
cities that want to compete 
and succeed. These are 
dynamic, innovative times, 
which only elevate the need 
for the Institute." 




Jess Wendover, aicp, leed-ap 

Director 

The Mayors' Institute on 
City Design 



'The mayor's office has 
tremendous potential 
to shape every design 
decision in an American 
city. Until they attend the 
Mayors' Institute, many 
mayors don't understand the 
power of design to shape a 
vibrant, diverse, livable, and 
sustainable city. The Mayors' 
Institute on City Design works 
to equip these local leaders 
with the tools to achieve real 
greatness in their community.' 



The Institute remains one of the 
most unique learning environments 
available to mayors today..." 




The Mayors' Institute 
on City Design 



Maurice D. Cox 

Director of Design 

National Endowment for 
the Arts 



Creating, protecting, and enhancing the quality of life in American cities is an extraordinary 
responsibility — one that falls squarely on the shoulders of our nation's mayors. 

When, in 2002, I became mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia, home to the University of 
Virginia and the legacy of Thomas Jefferson, I was struck by the visible connections between urban 
development decisions I was entrusted to make and the built environments that resulted. I quickly 
learned that beautifully designed streets, vibrant neighborhoods, and dynamic public squares, 
parks, and civic buildings are the very embodiment of the "quality of life" that citizens desire. 
When mayors lead with the profound understanding of their role as shapers of such places, they 
dramatically increase the opportunities to create better cities. But where can mayors go to learn the 
art of city design? 

The Mayors' Institute on City Design was conceived in 1986 by Charleston Mayor Joseph P. 
Riley and architect/urban designer Jaquelin Robertson with the goal of providing mayors across 
the nation the necessary tools to shape more livable communities. The Institute remains one of the 
most unique learning environments available to mayors today, giving many of them their first real 
opportunity to be surrounded by some of the nation's best design professionals and to learn both 
the practical tools of good city design and a vocabulary to talk about design in ways that relate to 
their constituents' lives. In order to serve the widest range of cities, in every corner of our country, 
six Institutes are held each year: four regional Institutes, hosted in partnership with schools of 
architecture and design at leading universities, and two national Institutes conducted to serve our 
nation's larger cities. With more than 750 alumni mayors to date, the extraordinary results of this 
ongoing work are now visible in hundreds of revitalized cities across America. 

Part of the success of the Mayors' Institute results from its simple premise and unique, intimate 
format. Over a two-and-a-half-day period, eight mayors gather together with eight designers who act 
as their confidants, assisting them in their understanding of a complex urban development challenge 
specific to each mayor's city. The unresolved urban design case studies are brought to the Institute 
and presented by the mayors without their staff or the presence of the media. All the mayors then 
approach eight different design challenges — including their own — quickly increasing their capacity 
to address problems, and use innovative design thinking to reframe the unique opportunities 



presented by these challenges. Often, the gap between the collective values of their 
community and the urban design challenge presented by the mayor is bridged. In 
thoughtful discussions between mayors and designers, never-imagined opportunities 
are frequently revealed, continually raising the bar on design excellence. Many mayors 
leave with a renewed sense of confidence in their ability to articulate a design vision 
for their cities and make effective decisions, while others find themselves simply better 
equipped to ask the right questions. All return to their communities inspired to use 
design to better the quality of life of all their citizens. 

One of the challenges all mayors face when returning home energized by the 
Institute and their role as chief designers of the city is how to capitalize on their new 
insights. How are the design lessons learned, shared, and reinforced among city council 
colleagues, professional staff, and other key community leaders in a way that advances 
the work? As a result of a generous gift from the Edward W. Rose III Family Fund of 
the Dallas Foundation — made possible by former member of the National Council on 
the Arts, Deedie Rose — the National Endowment for the Arts is launching an exciting 
new exploratory program of the Mayors' Institute in 2008. Initially serving a small 
group of mayors, the program will make available a post-Institute technical assistance 
team of designers to support the mayors' vision and help ensure that the lessons learned 
on the value of design are shared with the community.

Session, 2006 

"The Mayors' Institute 
provided me with a 
unique opportunity 
to discuss some of 
Baltimore's urban 
redevelopment plans 
with some of the best 
minds in the country. 
I really enjoyed my 
discussion with some 
of the best mayors in 
America who shared 
their own vision for 
their cities, and was 
able to apply their 
honest feedback to 
the improvement of 
the quality of design 
for Baltimore. I hope 
to apply what I learned 
for Baltimore in my new 
role as governor for 
the state of Maryland." 



'...a decision about the physical design 
of a city will influence the city and its 
people for generations." 




Design and the 
American Mayor 



Joseph Riley 

Mayor of Charleston, 
South Carolina 



America was settled by people who desired a rural, agrarian experience. But now we are the largest 
urban nation in the world. Increasingly, the daily lives of most Americans are influenced by towns 
and cities. The extent to which our towns and cities are places of beauty, order, and inspiration is the 
extent to which this civilization in America will thrive. 

Who is chiefly responsible for the successful design of a city? The mayor is. But until the 
Mayors' Institute, few mayors realized this responsibility and opportunity. 

We mayors exhaust ourselves with lots of decisions — political, personnel, budget. But 100 years 
from now, there will be no real evidence of how we made those decisions. In contrast, a decision 
about the physical design of a city will influence the city and its people for generations. This was my 
awakening: that mayors can be and should be the chief urban designers of their cities. 

Mayors are quick studies. They are smart, or they wouldn't get elected. They are adroit; they 
can handle problems and challenges and quickly become learned in them. But few have any real 
experience or training in their greatest responsibility, the physical design of the city. And all design 
decisions come across the mayor's desk. They may not look like design issues, but they are: land use 
or zoning issues, infrastructure issues, street or highway planning, parking, landscape, facility siting 
issues, and more. Decisions about these issues almost always impact the design of our cities and not 
just for awhile, rather for a very long time. 

Mayors come to the Institute as regular people, but I promise you, they leave as zealous 
apostles of good urban design. You can see the light bulbs go off in their minds. They start fidgeting. 
They can't wait to get home. They want to get it going, whether it reaffirms instincts they had or 
they are secretly alarmed by the bad decisions they have made. At one recent Institute, a mayor said, 
"Stop! Wait! Don't say anything. I have to make a phone call. They are doing the wrong thing back 
home. I have to stop them before it is too late." 

They not only leave the Mayors' Institute as changed people, but they go home and 
they change their cities. More than 750 mayors have gone back with new opportunities and 
responsibilities and duties. 

I can take you from Anchorage to West Palm Beach, from Honolulu to Boston, and show you 
parks and fountains, new downtowns, restored Main Streets, affordable housing skillfully designed, 



splendid public grounds, and so much more that has been shaped by a mayor's 
participation in the Institute. 

The former mayor of Sacramento sent me a note a few months ago that said, 
"Remember, Mayor, I came to the Institute with a design issue, but what I learned was 
that we hadn't protected our state capitol. I went back, brought in designers, and we 
created a new planning requirement so that large buildings couldn't be built right in 
front of the state capitol of California." 

The mayors go home accepting the responsibility of being their city's chief urban 
designer. They don't go back as architects or landscape architects or planners. They go 
back as leaders, accepting the responsibility to make the physical development of their 
cities more worthwhile. 

Now, these are physical things that lend themselves to statistics. But in the final 
analysis, it is the human experience that counts. That is what this is about. 

We built a waterfront park in our city that could have been a gated, high-rise, 
private, big-tax-base center. Instead, we made it a beautiful park for all people. And 
one morning right after we built the park, I was jogging past, and I saw a fellow sitting 
on the edge of the park. I didn't disturb him, but I saw him again two weeks later. I 
knew this fellow. He had epilepsy. His job was sweeping up in front of a filling station 
and shining shoes. He rode a bicycle and lived with his mother. He couldn't travel; 
Charleston was his entire world. And I said, "I saw you, Clarence, at the park the other 
morning. You go there often?" And he said, "Yes, I go every day." And I asked, "Why?" 
He said, "Mayor, because it is so beautiful, and I love it when the sun comes up, and the 
big ships are coming into the harbor." 

In our country now, it is not the whippoorwill on the fencepost along a rural 
trail that is a daily experience for most Americans. Rather, it is the streets and public 
places in cities. Because of the work of the Mayors' Institute on City Design, these 
daily experiences for our citizens are increasingly those of beauty, order, and inspiration 
worthy of a great nation.

R. T. Rybak 

Mayor of Minneapolis, MN 
MICD 33, 2004 



'The Mayors' Institute 
was one of the most 
rewarding experiences 
I have had as mayor. It 
allowed me to talk about 
big visions with great 
minds in a collegial 
setting mayors can't often 
experience. I came back 
refreshed, refocused, 
and more determined 
than ever to improve 
the quality of design in 
my city. I would strongly 
encourage anyone lucky 
enough to be invited to 
take advantage of this 
great opportunity."

"As a new mayor, the 
workshop provided me 
with a great opportunity 
to establish a paradigm 
on how to evaluate my 
city's urban fabric. It 
was also important 
for me to sit down 
with fellow mayors to 
discuss urban concerns 
and address challenges 
we tackle each day in 
our respective cities."

"I was a new mayor who 
had inherited a plan 
to replace our main 
street with a 45-mph 
throughway. I knew in my 
gut this was wrong, but 
I wasn't sure what to do 
about it. Thanks to what 
I learned at the Institute, 
I could get away with 
saying, "Over my dead 
body." My participation 
encouraged me, taught 
me and gave me the 
contacts I needed to stop 
the throughway and then 
reallocate the money 
toward a redesign and 
revitalization effort that 
is now underway, saving 
our downtown core. But 
for the Mayors' Institute, 
I doubt we would have 
ended up saving the four 
city blocks that are now 
being rebuilt."

U.S. Senate 
Former Mayor of 
St. Paul, MN 

MICD 19, 1995 



"As mayor of Minnesota's 
capital city, St. Paul, I 
realized that it was going 
to be important not only 
to have a plan for the 
future design of the city, 
but I would also need 
to find ways of working 
with designers, business 
owners, and residents 
to implement that plan. 
The Mayors' Institute on 
City Design prepared me 
for ways to reflect and 
recognize the importance 
of creating an enduring 
vision for the future of the 
city, but more importantly, 
for generating solutions 
to make that vision a 
reality."

Former Mayor of 

Charlotte, NC 

MICD 4, 1988 

"Having participated in 
the program and then 
seeing the positive 
results in my city, I 
would recommend 
the Institute to every 
mayor. Sometimes you 
get so wrapped up in 
the day-to-day issues of 
your city that it is hard 
to see the forest for 
the trees. The Mayors' 
Institute allowed me 
to think outside the 
box and to learn from 
other mayors who had 
already tackled similar 
problems. In every 
respect, it was a very 
positive experience."

"The two days at the

wonderful new Robert 
Stern building directly 
on axis with our state

very well have ended up 
on a much less successful

U.S. House of 

Representatives 
Former Mayor of 

Fort Worth, TX 

MICD 11, 1991 

"It was the most important 
program that I attended 
as a mayor. Throughout 
my three terms, I kept 
coming back to what 
I had learned at the 
Institute and applying it 
to my city. I can think of 
at least three specific 
success stories that 
were the direct result of 
my participation. These 
include the creation of a 
grand boulevard in the 
place of a torn-down 
overpass, the rebuilding 
of our downtown library, 
and the reorientation 
of the city toward its 
waterfront. Honestly, in 
terms of what will last 
beyond me into the future, 
the Mayors' Institute had 
a greater influence than 
anything else I did while 
in office."

Jerry Abramson 

Mayor of Louisville, KY 



A little more than a decade ago, downtown Louisville was isolated from the Ohio River and its 
heritage by an interstate highway, industry on the waterfront, and decades of neglect. But today 
Waterfront Park has become the "living room for the city," where locals and tourists come to 
connect with the city's history, stroll along the river, board riverboats, and enjoy outdoor festivals. 

The rebirth of the riverfront began with the election of Jerry Abramson as mayor in 1985 and 
picked up momentum when he attended the Mayors' Institute on City Design. Mayor Abramson 
was elected to office in a city nicknamed "River City," but Louisville's pedestrian and recreational 
access to the Ohio River was severed in 1972 when an elevated highway along the waterfront was 
constructed. 

From the beginning, Mayor Abramson believed that the fabric of Louisville's downtown had to 
be stitched back together for it to function best. He turned to the Mayors' Institute for guidance. 

As a participant in the twelfth national Institute in 1992, the mayor discussed his vision for 
Louisville's downtown with the design experts around the table. These included urban designers, 
park planners, and experienced developers from other cities with revitalized waterfronts who were 
excited about the opportunity to bring their expertise to Louisville. 

In a lively 90-minute brainstorming session of the sort that has become a hallmark of the 
Mayors' Institute, these experts, Mayor Abramson, and the other invited mayors proposed design 
alternatives and argued their merits, in hope that the best ideas would be incorporated into the 
city's plan.

Mayor of Louisville, KY 
MICD 12, 1992 



Mayor Abramson returned to his city with renewed vision and vigor. The mayor, 
the 15-member Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation that he created, and 
the firm Hargreaves Associates that he hired to develop a master plan began to deliver 
on the promise of the Mayors' Institute discussions. 

"We made smart design decisions working with a great designer," Mayor 
Abramson said. "We assembled a strong team and involved the community in the 
planning. The park's scale and use of space make it an appealing and long-lasting part 
of our local landscape." 

To reconnect downtown to the waterfront, streets were reconfigured and a 
highway on-ramp was moved to open up views. Despite those changes, the river was 
still not visible from most downtown streets. To correct this problem a new park was 
gradually sloped toward the river, allowing for direct views and acting as a visual 
focal point. New lighting, public art, and water features were added to enliven the 
waterfront. 

The project continues. At this time, 72 acres of waterfront have been converted 
from industrial to public space. Fundraising for an additional 13 acres is underway, 
and there are plans to build a pedestrian bridge across the river. 



'From my experience with 
the Mayors' Institute on 
City Design, I've gained a 
greater appreciation for 
the value of design and its 
importance in improving 
communities. As mayor, 
you can't create a vision 
for your community 
without including design 
as a critical component." 




If crowds are any indication, the effort is a success. More than one million people visit the 
waterfront each year, and an estimated 5,000 people work in a waterfront district which once had 
only a hundred or so employees. 

A ragged strip of industrial land bordered by railroads, junkyards, and a snarl of highways has 
become a place where residents and visitors enjoy the best of Louisville. This good news story is one 
of dozens nationwide where the Mayors' Institute on City Design has played a role in the physical 
transformation of an American city.

'The Mayors' Institute 
on City Design was 
invaluable. After having 
been mayor about 18 
months, I was able 
to take concepts and 
pragmatic solutions 
home from both other 
mayors and resource 
consultants. The 
Institute is the right 
amount of time and 
structure to have a great 
impact on all mayors." 



"The Mayors' Institute 
was a truly unique and 
rewarding experience. 
It was incredibly valuable 
to have the opportunity 
to hold a workshop 
on a specific planning 
opportunity in Cincinnati 
and get ideas and 
feedback from mayors 
from around the country. 
The relaxed setting 
allowed the mayors to 
really dig into the issues 
of each project. I was 
able to take something 
from each discussion 
that I could use back 
in Cincinnati." 



'All of the great things 
I heard about the 
Mayors' Institute were 
proved true. I only wish 
I had made the time 
earlier to attend. The 
quality of the resource 
professionals and the 
ensuing discussions 
exceeded my high 
expectations and gave 
me some valuable 
insight into the physical 
future of my city. To 
each of my colleagues 
at the U.S. Conference 
of Mayors: If you are 
lucky enough to be 
invited, don't pass 
up the opportunity 
to attend."
