APA Workshop and Conference – Sept. 16-19, 2014

2014 GREAT PLACEMAKERS LAB
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 | Welcome Reception & Keynote Speaker
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 | Track-based, conference workshops and seminars Thursday, September 18, 2014 | Experiential learning in Columbus neighborhoods
Friday, September 19, 2014 | Walkability Summit, with the latest innovations

The American Planning Association (APA) designated German Village as one of the nation’s 10 Great Neighborhoods in America in 2011. Building on this recognition and the fact that Columbus is a city of remarkable neighborhoods, the German Village Society presents a 3.5 day workshop focused on the facets that make neighborhoods great.

Columbus is an ideal laboratory for learning about the art of great placemaking. German Village’s 50+ years of historic preservation; Short North’s exciting infill development; innovative partnerships for affordable housing and job creation in Olde Towne East and Weinland Park; and reimaging of neighborhoods such as Franklinton all make our city a perfect setting to learn about each neighborhood’s unique “path to transformation.”

The workshop will be approved for continuing education credit for planners, architects, designers and realtors. The event will also be aimed at a broader “arm-chair planner” audience for those people whose passion and perseverance are the strength of all great communities.

The 3.5 day workshop will include one day of traditional track-based, conference learning and one day of experiential learning within our neighborhoods. The workshop days will be preceded by a gala opening event featuring a well-known speaker and open to all of Columbus. On Friday, our Walkability Summit, co-sponsored by Walkable Neighborhoods, will illustrate latest practices on integrated our neighborhoods.
