Community Design Charrettes
The team at the CIECD Innovation Center brings together professionals in the areas of architecture, land planning, marketing, branding, planning and resource management to assist a community seeking to define its identity and future. When conducting a charrette, everyone’s ideas and comments deserve equal consideration and respect. A successful charrette promotes joint ownership of solutions and attempts to defuse any underlying confrontational attitudes. The most successful charrette is a holistic or all encompassing process. The community is examined and input is sought to assist in the development of the plan. The sessions also explore the history, culture, resources and pride of citizenship.
