On Thursday, Feb. 5, Leadership Sandy Springs (LSS) will present a community wide event featuring internationally recognized city development expert Peter Kageyama, as he discusses what makes cities successful and how ordinary citizens can do extraordinary things to make it happen. Kageyama will share his ideas on enhancing the quality of life in Sandy Springs and building an emotionally engaged city.

Kageyama has worked with cities across the country and around the world influencing and guiding many communities to create positive change, opening up new possibilities for social and economic development. Additionally, he has authored two books, For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places and the recent Love Where You Live: Creating Emotionally Engaging Places. Kageyama helps communities take their emotional temperature in relationship with their city and inspires through examples from other locales.

With the transformation surrounding City Center and other projects in north and south Sandy Springs, LSS strives to advance the conversation and identify innovative ways to translate our community’s passion into real outcomes in our city.

This event is open to the public though seating is limited. Networking and appetizers begin at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts by 7 p.m. at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, 805 Mount Vernon Highway, NW.

Cost is $25 for LSS members, $30 for non-members.
