US expert tells south-east Queensland mayors 'Rise as a region or fall'

Tony Moore reports in the Brisbane Times (13.5.16) on the meeting in Brisbane of SEQ council mayors, ahead of preparations for drawing up the next South East Queensland Regional Plan, due for release in mid-2017.

'As they say, the collective noun for a group of mayors is a "magnificence" of mayors.

'And as almost all south-east Queensland mayors gathered in one place at one time on Friday, they were told by New York urban planning expert Mitch Silver "You either rise as a region, or you fall as a region".

'The magnificence of mayors were grouped at Reddacliff Place to say they would plan as a unit – not as individual councils – or time, population and blunt politics would pass them by.'
