2018: Claiborne Corridor
The workshop focus is a Housing Plan for the Claiborne Corridor, which will kick off a series of neighborhood plans in the city. The intent is to translate overarching equity strategies to the neighborhood level and fully engage residents and stakeholders. This is a unique opportunity to get involved locally during the conference. Learn from residents and stakeholders directly in the Treme neighborhood.
Community Assistance Program (CAP) Training Webinar
This CAP Training Webinar is intended for professional planners, community organizers, and citizens interested in community planning. AICP members will gain a more nuanced set of skills related to organizing and participating in community workshops and other public engagement strategies (and earn 1 CM credit).
