Planning Ethics

4

I know the ethics sessions revolve around discussions of what is ethical and what is not, but sometimes they are so vague that many assumptions are made. Maybe this is the point, but it appears that the ethics code needs to be brought up-to-date to include sexual harassment and gender neutral issues.

Great tour through the downtown Brooklyn area that was rezoned that showed participants the effects the rezoning had up-close and personal. Michael was great in connecting the planning and policy decisions to their physical outcomes, illuminating where along the process this rezoning was successful yet fell short in many respects. Great perspective to bring back to my profession, particularly around questions of zoning and affordable housing.

the Blackspace Manifesto provides clear and inspiring lens through which designers and planners can do so much more for Black communities by; 1) recognizing that Black spaces and communities have significant value as they are; and, 2) Our work as designers, particularly within Blackspaces, push beyond normative planning structures and concepts to have a deeper impact and push our profession forward.
