The National Charrette Institute and Michigan State University Extension are hosting a statewide training series on placemaking using the NCI charrette process to achieve quality places.
The interactive one-day workshops will teach community and economic development professionals, planners, zoning administrators, elected officials, planning commissioners and involved citizens the essentials of quality places and how to create them using the NCI’s process for design-based collaboration.
Participants will practice identifying areas ripe for placemaking and develop a placemaking project. Then, participants will learn through lecture, video and exercises how the NCI Charrette process can be used to implement a placemaking project.
These training sessions will also discuss walkability, housing, form based codes, placemaking strategies, zoning, charrettes and more.
Appropriate for any size community, attendees will be poised to replicate the activities following the workshop by identifying suitable locations for placemaking in their community, working with a group to develop a placemaking project or activity, and thinking about how collaboration by design can implement the project.
