Community Placemaking & Community Design Charrette
The Design Wisconsin Team’s charrette is called a “Visit”. The Visit takes place over 3-days featuring a variety of public engagement activities beginning with a meet-and-greet on a Thursday evening and culminating in a final public presentation on a Saturday evening. The public engagement activities are designed to collect knowledge while informing residents of community issues and opportunities. Care is taken to take into account include the diversity of the community members as well as the diverse nature of issues and concerns. A team of volunteer design and planning professionals will collect the information from the community and quickly convert it into visual representations of the community’s future.
To apply for a visit, please contact your local UW-Extension Educator/Agent. They will guide you through the application process, build community capacity for the visit, and assist with implementation.
The Community Design Team is an opportunity to bring a volunteer team of planning and design professionals into your community to help you discover the short-, medium-, and long-range visions of your future.
