Former Phoenix mayor Terry Goddard will undoubtedly be reminding us in the near future that it was he who finally managed to revitalize our long-sagging downtown, which is once again the vital and vibrant center of our city. In the meantime, we have Phillip VanderMeer, who will present “The Collapse and Rebirth of Downtown Phoenix, 1945-2007” lecture recapping how downtown Phoenix fell apart over the space of two decades, and detailing the unsuccessful attempts to revive it. Until Goddard stepped in, that is. The ASU professor of history will also explain how the major changes in downtown’s façade have changed Phoenix’s national reputation, and describe what we might hope to see in our city’s future.
Fri., Sept. 4, 6:30-8:30 p.m., 2009
