Patricia O'Donnell presented "The Role of Heritage in Urban Redevelopment: Public Spaces are Cultural & Natural Heritage Assets" to the April 2018 National Planning Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Examples of successful public spaces demonstrated potential benefits across social, ecological, and economic sectors and emphasized the importance of public open space in urban areas. O'Donnell also introduced global issues including massive international migration due to climate change to remind the audience of planners of the rapid pace of change and the need to proactively plan open space.
