From the Department of Planning:
WB 1008 - NPS: UrbanPlan for Communities is an ideal course for local community members and leaders who would like to learn more about the fundamental forces that shape and affect the built environment and the important leadership roles that elected and appointed officials as well as community members and leaders play in the real estate development process. NPU University in collaboration with Invest Atlanta is pleased to announce that the application is open for WB 1008: Neighborhood Planning Series - UrbanPlan Institute.
This virtual class is free to the public and designed for community leaders to better understand the trade-offs and risk at play in the entitlement and negotiation process associated with land use, especially in public/private partnerships. The UrbanPlan case study is an example of a city-led redevelopment effort where compromise needs to be met between the locality, the development team selected in the RFP, and the community.
