Preserving Community Character Through Design
August 7, 2003
1:30 p.m. � 3:00 p.m. EDT
Faculty: Rodney Swink, FASLA
Education Credit:1.5 PDH
Community character develops over time and is a product of the natural, cultural, and built environment. Are communities today building anything worth preserving? Is the design community contributing to community character or detracting from it? This session stresses that citizens should expect more from designers and landscape architects should be the leaders in preserving community character. We will review recent shifts in land use in America and show how both public policy and consumer attitudes have altered our use of land. And we will look at recent trends and actions that suggest we are again changing our expectations for land use, thus affecting the work of landscape architects.
- Understand the historical factors behind land use decisions in America
- Identify recent public policy trends that affect land use and development decisions
- Recognize emerging opportunities for designers in community building
