"The material in this CD is crucial to moving New Urbanism from theory to real-world practice. It's an indispensable tool."
- Victor Dover,
Dover, Kohl & Partners

Conventional approaches to the public approval process are failing. Even high quality architectural and planning projects with demonstrable public benefit may lose support without a collaborative approach like the NCI Charrette. The public design charrette has emerged as an alternative to the "design and present" convention. NCI Charrettes provide a framework for creating a shared vision with community involvement, directed by consultants representing all key disciplines.

The Start Up Kit covers the entire NCI Dynamic Planning process. You will learn the basic steps from "Getting Charrette Ready" to creating your "Charrette Schedule."

The CD-Rom includes:
- An 86-minute narrated presentation of the first module of the NCI Charrette Planner™ Certification,
- A 65-page workbook to accompany the presentation, and
- A Dynamic Planning checklist of tools and techniques.

Who will benefit?
- Planners and architects will learn time-tested best practices to increase their capability to handle the most controversial projects.
- Developers will gain strategies to accelerate the design and approvals phase without sacrificing project quality and control.
- Planning organizations will learn how to gain an equal voice in the planning process.
