Tools For Community Design and Decision Making V: Information Technology in Action
In the 5th Annual Working Session on Tools for Community Design and Decision-Making, planners and decision-makers from around the country will review and work with a variety of technological and non-technological tools and methods to develop and visualize design options, involve more people in planning and decisions, analyze how policy decisions impact development, and build agreement among stakeholders. There will be two interactive programs to choose from.
The General Conference featuring:
• Morning plenary sessions including an electronic town hall exercise with keypad voting and groupware, and;
• Afternoon workshops and panels where participants can watch demonstrations of new tools and learn how to use them, as well as discuss case studies of local governments using design and decision tools to solve urban and environmental problems successfully.
A Hands-on Digital Charrette where:
• Tool designers and attendees can work together in a real-time setting on a specifi c planning situation, and;
• Attendees can apply new technologies to realistic problems and opportunities in regional and neighborhood planning. These new tools for community planning can make a remarkable difference in crafting a satisfying outcome for regional, community, and neighborhood planning and design.
The working sessions will introduce participants to the effective use of information technology; the charrette and the general conference programs will be integrated to continually inform and improve each other.
