What is the Virtual Design Charrette?

October 3rd - 8th! A virtual community design charrette is being held, with a focus on the College Hill area and surrounding neighborhoods. Events will take place on-line, beginning with a Hands-On Visioning session on Saturday morning and wrapping-up with a Work-in Progress presentation the following week. There will be several other opportunities for public involvement via the web, including daily studio updates, topical presentations, questions and surveys, and opportunities to virtually "drop-in" to the studio to talk with members of the design team. All are encouraged to participate. This effort will lead to a new College Hill Vision Plan, followed by updates to the zoning code for the area.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3:

HANDS-ON COMMUNITY DESIGN WORKSHOP. The week will start with a virtual session on Saturday morning. Participate from the comfort of your own home (or any other location you choose with an internet connection!) City residents will gather virtually to share their ideas about the future of College Hill. The workshop will include on-line facilitated small group discussions. People will share their aspirations for the future -- using words and images to discuss topics like urban design; walkability; character and scale of new buildings; areas for change; and areas for protection. Join us using the link below!
