Community Planning Workshops

Chapter volunteers have conducted two Community Planning Workshops to introduce planners and Community based groups to the benefits of developing community-driven plan for their areas. The goal of the workshops is to make community based organizations more aware of how a plan can support their overall objectives and to introduce planners to the needs of this relatively untapped market for planning. The need for these workshops became evident at the conclusion of the survey of community –based organizations conducted by the Chapter in 2011. The survey made clear that group know very little about community planning and how it can help them.
