      American Planning Association (APA) Audio/Web Conference Training Sessions

      Last year we invited neighborhood leaders to Maintaining Neighborhood Character offered through the APA. Neighborhood leaders were pleased with the session. So, we are going to continue to offer training sessions to neighborhood leaders this year. Below are the titles, times and locations for the audio/web conference sessions.  Please note that we do not have flexibility with the content, dates or times of the sessions.


      Mastering Density
      February 13, 2008, Madison Water Utility, 119 E Olin Avenue, 3:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m.

      Density, long a goal of planning, can still be a hard sell in some communities. In this program, presenters demonstrate how to achieve density through design, as well as how to understand the economics of density. Learn how density works with transportation and ultimately affects sustainability. Examine density's effects and benefits. Gain ideas on how to present the concept of density to achieve critical buy-in.

      Community-Based Brownfields Redevelopment
      May 21, 2008, Madison Water Utility, 119 E Olin Avenue, 3:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m.

      Too often, community groups and residents of low-income communities are left out of the brownfield redevelopment process. Learn how to engage community members so they can see the opportunities presented by brownfield sites. Assess how community development corporations can play a major role and find out how the community can weigh the costs of brownfield redevelopment. Hear from community members as well as technical experts. Co-sponsor: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
