Civic by Design 101: Charlotte’s Built Environment on Valentine’s Day 2017

Author: Thomas E. Low AIA CNU LEED AICP NCARB, Director, Civic By Design

What do you love most about Charlotte’s build environment?

Charlotte’s changing fast — and more massive new developments are coming every week. Are there ways we can help shape that growth? Political leaders, developers, planners, designers and ordinary citizens all hold pieces of the necessary knowledge. We need to learn from each other … and especially to learn how to talk together about what makes a well-planned livable city.  Time for CIVIC DESIGN 101 ! Since 2005, Charlotte’s long-running Civic By Design Forum has brought people together to discuss local growth issues. In 2017 the Forum begins a series of monthly workshops aimed at helping people of every background become informed, active participants in the city’s  growth.  Course attendees will receive a Certificate in Civic Design for participating in a minimum of 4 workshops.  The course and certification are free and open to the public. Together let’s raise the bar in 2017!

For our February session of CIVIC DESIGN 101, please join us as perhaps a warm-up to venturing out into our beautiful city on Valentine’s Day.

Join us, share your opinion, and receive a box of #candyhearts.
