2014 Spring Planning Forum – Making It Great Now (Allentown location) | 5.25 CM
May 13, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 4:15 pm$80
Making it Great Now is a full-day program that focuses on revitalization strategies for Pennsylvania communities. The program will emphasize projects operating within short planning horizons using limited resources – strategies and methods that can be rapidly deployed, quickly implemented, and readily realized to advance community goals. The keynote speaker is Andrew Howard, AICP of Team Better Block, a leading expert in placemaking and transportation. The remainder of the program will be filled with a more local perspective – the “how to” and “hands on” of creative asset mobilization, organizational structure, community capacity building, institutional support, and civic engagement. An ethics panel will focus on engaging all community members, including populations that are typically underserved, and the promises and pitfalls of using social media to engage underserved populations.
Approved for 5.25 CM (with 1.5 CM ethics)
