National Charrette Institute announces new online Community Forum

National Charrette Institute

We at NCI invite you to join us and your colleagues as we inquire, share and learn about charrettes and NCI Dynamic Planning on our new blog, the National Charrette Institute Community Forum. The blog currently contains dozens of valuable tips, tools and techniques that were previously found in NCI's monthly e-newsletters, now categorized and searchable.

We look forward to this forum becoming a place for discussion, shared learning and problem solving for those interested in NCI Dynamic Planning and charrettes around the world. Non-archived posts will be open for comment, and we welcome feedback and personal experiences. We encourage readers to use the Contact/Submit page for questions, "war stories," and success stories. We will post them with our own comments and leave them open for public comment. We are excited to host this unique forum, the first of its kind for the discussion of public participation and collaboration in designing healthy, sustainable and feasible community plans.
