Overview: Creating change in your community can take shape in many forms. We’ll discuss the role of the downtown plan and strategy in counseling communities through change and improvement and how to work through challenges and issues, local politics and differing opinions. Learn about two communities’ approaches to updating their plans, using zoning as the primary tool for implementing a downtown plan. Join in the conversation by sending questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Learn the difference between a comprehensive plan and a targeted area plan.
- Learn how to use plans to achieve consensus for action and overcome resistance and/or reluctance to change.
- Learn how to identify who’s in charge of zoning changes in your community and how you can have an impact.
