September 21 and 22
2 days, 2 disciplines, 2 ways to participate – defining our professional roles and uniting to build more equitable, accessible and inspired communities.
It’s all about the user experience. How do we make residents feel comfortable, that there concerns are valued, and that we are reaching the voices that want to be part of the discussion. Virtual engagement has allowed residents to join from the comfort of their homes, cutting down on travel time, removing geographic restrictions, and even allowing for the recording of sessions to be viewed at a later, more convenient time. However, does that make for a more engaging experience? While there may be some concerns with virtual community engagement, there may also be opportunities to broaden the discussion on many of our communities biggest planning topics. This session will use the missing middle as a case study to examine how we engage the public, what we have learned in a digital Covid world, and how we might leverage this opportunity to improve community engagement in the future.
