Our Industrial Cities Initiative Symposium has a new date. Previously scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2011, the event will now take place at the Chicago Fed on Tuesday, February 28, 2012. The event is being delayed so that all 10 of the cities: Cedar Rapids, IA, Waterloo, IA, Aurora, IL, Joliet, IL, Fort Wayne, IN, Gary, IN, Grand Rapids, MI, Pontiac, MI, Green Bay, WI, and Racine, WI—can be discussed in greater depth. The department is also working on comparative data statistics for the 10 cities that should be completed by the new symposium date.
We will continue to post blogs on these cities over the coming months. Additionally, once the comparative data analysis part of the project is done, we will post a blog discussing the data.
