The Jeffrey Place charrette process exemplifies collaborative planning by honoring input from industry experts and community members. Over two months, our team engaged:
- Twelve registered architects from three firms
- Over 350 community residents and
- 3,500 write-in participants.
This wealth of insight resulted in 48 competing plans that were then distilled into one Master Plan, reflecting community values, needs, and capacity alongside zoning ordinances and engineering. The result was a land-use plan supporting:
- A high quality of life with employment and education opportunities
- A self-governed oversight committee to protect the rights of public housing residents
- The first urban New Community Authority in the Midwest
