Ramsey County is planning Riverview and Rush Line transitways. Support from those who need it most – people who rely on transit but are traditionally left out and those who fear it most – people concerned with impacts, will determine a projects faith. Learn how interests were aligned through nontraditional events and use of interactive models to visualize change. This session will meet the following three learning objectives
• Skill Building – this session will teach participants innovative public engagement strategies and techniques that can be applied to projects in their own communities. Techniques used on the project include the hosting non-traditional engagement events in geographic areas typically left out of the process, use of imagery and photography to gather and display feedback and the use of interactive physical models to help visualize change.
• Workshop/Hands-on Training – as a part of the session we would like to demo both the digital and physical models and how we can use the movable parts to demonstrate multiple transit cross section scenarios.
• Interdisciplinary – the digital and physical models were developed in partnership with architectural students and staff at the Metropolitan Design Center at the University of Minnesota. Attendees will learn how bringing how interdisciplinary partnerships can be used to help the public better understand your project.
