MORE SESSION DETAILS
Explore the value of design-based comprehensive plans — why they are important, how they can work, what they can accomplish. Narratives are mandatory, of course, but the balance is shifting to fewer words and more graphics. Starting with an overview of how comprehensive plans are typically structured, this session describes how imagery can enhance a plan’s statements regarding cultural identity, desired scaling and proportionality, expectations for the public realm, and overall community character. Get insights on how community planning efforts can be structured for participatory engagement in identifying the design themes to be expressed. The final presentation focuses on an award-winning plan that used this design-based approach, with descriptions of how it was implemented and what it accomplished.
