Listening Sessions

From December 2016 through April 2017, Mayor’s Neighborhood Advocates requested time on the meeting agendas of registered community organizations.  Similarly, DMD city planners  reached out to organizational partners representing voices typically under-represented in planning processes.  These sessions, lasting 15-20 minutes, were designed to identify the things people love about their neighborhoods as well as the types of places, uses, and amenities that are desired in different types of neighborhoods and other districts and, together with the Bicentennial Agenda values, help guide development of the Land Use Pattern Book, the guidelines portion of the plan that will be applied by graduates of the People’s Planning Academy during the mapping phase of the plan.
