Promoting Community Transformation through Participatory Planning, Design, and Development

Throughout the United States, local residents are coming together with civic and business leaders to devise and implement comprehensive redevelopment plans to improve their quality of life. These efforts are increasingly using participatory methods to elicit the input from those most affected by these plans and to build a non-partisan base of support to ensure their implementation. This session introduces participants to the origins, evolution, practice, and accomplishments of community-based, resident-led planning that is having a transformative impact upon communities.
