Neighborland co-founder Dan Parham will share a methodology called “community-centered design” which helps engage residents in the planning of our communities. Dan will share the theory that shaped this methodology, along with case studies from across Neighborland’s 200 projects, including the Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan.
Dan is the co-founder and CEO of Neighborland, a communications platform that empowers civic organizations to collaborate with the public in an accessible, participatory, and equitable way. As a social enterprise, Neighborland has worked with more than 200 city agencies, universities, foundations, and non-profits across the U.S. More than 3,000,000 residents have participated on Neighborland, and these projects have yielded more than $1 billion in social and economic impact.
Dan’s design work has been recognized by the Venice Biennale of Architecture, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, and National Endowment for the Arts. He has spoken about civic engagement and technology at the 100 Resilient Cities Global Summit in Mexico City, Smart Cities World Congress in Barcelona, and the Society of Urban Planning and Research (SPUR) in San Francisco.

Cities and Counties throughout the country are adopting CPTED ordinances requiring site plan reviews with crime prevention in mind. In some communities, law enforcement officers who are specially trained in CPTED are working closely with Land Use and Transportation Planners, Architects, City Officials, and Educators to ensure the proper design of structures, schools, and neighborhoods. In other communities, these professionals are cross-training to learn about CPTED and how the concepts can improve their work.
During this workshop, participants will learn:
- How the design and use of the environment can control human / criminal behavior and reduce the fear of crime;
- How natural access control and natural surveillance decrease the opportunity for crime; and,
- How different aspects of lighting impact human behavior and other design strategies.
Participants will work together on a site survey and provide a group presentation of their results using CPTED strategies. They will learn the advantages of having a CPTED ordinance and how to construct and present one to lawmakers.
Who should attend: Land use and transportation planners, bike and pedestrian professionals, park planners, landscape architects, architects, health departments, law enforcement officers, engineers, lighting and utility personnel, public art personnel, traffic engineers, code enforcement officers, downtown managers, redevelopment officials, and developers.
