Community Visioning

(charettes, visual preference surveys)

Community visions depict alternative futures that can be achieved through planning and policy. Identifying preferred visions is a first key step in drafting a plan of any type. A vision can be thought of as the what and where for the community. A vision could be the creation of safe spaces for pedestrians, the creation of environments that support many modes of transportation.

Visions dont exist in isolation. The plans and policies accompanying a vision are the instruments through which the vision is attained. They are the how and when. Easily funded and implemented plans are short, straightforward, specific, and built on strong facts. The quality and effectiveness of a plan does not depend on its length or depth but on having clear goals and policies that effectively focus resources on making the changes that improve the pedestrian environment.
