James Rojas’s Design-Based Urban Planning Comes to Newark

06-25-2009

On Tuesday, June 22nd, Interboro teamed up with Los Angeles-based transportation planner James Rojas, whose “Design-Based Urban Planning” workshops invite citizens to engage complex planning issues through colorful models.

For two hours we sat on Central Avenue with our model of Northern Fairmount, inviting people who passed by to discuss some of the issues that mattered most to them. Much of the feedback we received was very valuable, and the concerns raised further helped inform our understanding of what is needed in the neighborhood. You can see pictures of the event here.
