Augusta Sustainable Charrette – Recap
TSW recently organized and led a highly successful Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program Charrette, which was focused on gathering community input about the future of the 15th Street corridor and surrounding areas. The charrette was designed to help create a vision for a vibrant, mixed-use area that will serve as a model for sustainable development in the region.
During the charrette, TSW’s team of experienced planners and designers worked closely with community participants to gather their input, ideas, and feedback. Through a series of collaborative exercises, including visioning sessions, brainstorming exercises, and design workshops, the team was able to produce a series of illustrative plans and renderings that effectively communicated the community’s vision for the future of the 15th Street corridor.
One of the key benefits of the charrette process is its ability to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders and foster a sense of collaboration and shared purpose. By working closely with members of the community, the TSW team was able to identify key issues, opportunities, and challenges related to the development of the 15th Street corridor. This allowed the team to produce a set of plans and renderings that were not only visually compelling but also grounded in a deep understanding of the community’s needs and priorities.
The result of the charrette was a set of implementable recommendations that can help guide the future development of the 15th Street corridor and surrounding areas. These recommendations included strategies for improving pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, creating mixed-use development opportunities, and enhancing the overall sustainability and livability of the area.
Overall, the Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program Charrette was a resounding success, and it serves as a testament to TSW’s commitment to engaging communities in the planning and design process. By working collaboratively with stakeholders, TSW is able to produce plans and designs that are both beautiful and functional, and that effectively meet the needs of the communities they serve.
