Building community: How urban planning, design impact cities

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy hosted a
special series of panel discussion talks this Wednesday with several
professionals and professors within spatial planning and urban design.
The panel discussion, called “Designing Value — The Impact of Design,”
focused on how design aesthetics blend together or clash with the needs
of our various social and cultural heritages, as well as large
institutional patterns. 

Charles T. Brown, a senior research specialist with the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC), demonstrated where urban planning and design can improve communities. In one instance, he displayed a view of a vacant street in central New Jersey, with limited sidewalks and housing.
