Regional Planning


In the second half of the two-part series, Regional Planning, the class members will further their understanding of the basic building blocks of a community as they relate specifically to four areas: land use, transportation, housing, and public finance. Introduced will be basic land use issues, competing community interests, and the intricacies of the land-use decision-making process.

Throughout the day, the class will have opportunities to interact with key policy makers, community advocates and government officials. The series will culminate in an exercise in which competing groups will attempt to build a “perfect city” based on the knowledge gained over the course of the two sessions.
