Workshop in Planning: Creating 21st Century Communities
This course is an advanced planning workshop that will provide students with an understanding of how plans are created and implemented. Students will learn about plan development at various scales regional, municipal and neighborhood- and explore techniques for effective community engagement in the planning process. The course examines the ways in which different types of plans can address the complex land use, environmental, health and social issues that confront today’s communities. This workshop includes a hands-on case study where students will develop a plan and test their ideas with a municipal Planning Board.
