Course Summary

Tools for Neighborhood Transformation Workshop

Planning trends are changing as cities and counties are strapped with cash, and planning departments are looking for more creative ways to engage residents and business owners. National trends are demonstrating that public-private partnerships are needed to supplement limited public funds. Furthermore, residents and business owners are tired of waiting for government to make progress and are eager to make improvements themselves in their own neighborhoods. Widespread tactical urbanism is a way that communities are creating physical, tangible, doable improvements. Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) and National Association of REALTORS want to be at the forefront of this movement, utilizing its momentum to implement smart growth.
