Exploration of how planners can better connect and engage people with our technical plans and projects. The presentation will begin with case studies of three City of Minneapolis planning projects that were technical in nature but utilized public feedback in the decision-making framework. The result of this planning work is an innovative and interative process to select capital projects, rooted in public engagement and the public good. The projects discussed will be 20 Year Streets Funding Plan, the Pedestrian Crash Study, and the Vision Zero Crash Study.
The second half of the presentation will continue with the theme of connecting people to projects, and specifically focus on ways to engage children with planning processes and ensuring technical mapping informaiton is made ADA compliant for online use. These tools and case studies will provide attendees with the techniques for improved ADA Section 508 Compliance and Accessibility for public engagement and ways to intentionally integrate children into the planning process, two groups that may be overlooked in traditional engagement of technical information.
AICP members and other attendees will learn through case study examples how to integrate public feedback into technical projects, tips, and resources for ensuring documents and maps online are ADA accessible, and way to engage with children in planning processes.
