The Rivard Report’s second annual CityFest will feature San Antonio native Robert Hammond, who helped lead the effort to transform an abandoned rail line into an acclaimed urban park, as its keynote speaker.

Co-Founder and Executive Director of the High Line, Robert Hammond had the vision and foresight to lead the effort to build an elevated park on an abandoned railway line in New York City 20 years ago. In 2017, he formed the High Line Network, which focuses on the equitable development of underused city infrastructure to develop new urban landscapes.
