This week, I'm spending a good deal of time at the planning charrette for West Fairview Avenue here in Montgomery. The plan is to revitalize the area and, for regulatory purposes, likely use Montgomery's form-based and transect-based code to implement the plan.
I've been fortunate to participate in many charrettes over the last decade. So far this has been one of the most interesting. The opening presentation on Monday evening had a packed crowd that was very diverse in geography, race, and socio-economics--a fantastic group of participants.
The week wraps up with a presentation on Friday evening. Since I'm covering zoning this semester in Property II, I've invited all of the students and a good number of them are coming. It should be a fantastically-practical learning experience.
If you are interested in more details, you can click here for the City of Montgomery's website for the charrette.
