First things first. What is a charrette? A charrette (pronounced [shuh-ret]) is an intensive brainstorming and planning session where neighborhood residents, merchants and stakeholders collaborate with city planners, engineers, and architects to create a vision for development. Join us for a charette with Goodwyn Mills & Cawood as we build from the visioning session held in February 2015 with Main Street Alabama to develop a plan for Old Shell Road Midtown. You will be able to share your ideas with urban designers as they work in a studio open to the public. The charette will close with a work-in-progress presentation from Goodwyn Mills & Cawood.
Thank you to Councilman Fred Richardson, Councilman Levon Manzie, County Commissioner Jerry Carl and County Commissioner Merceria Ludgood for their support and funding of our plan. Thank you to the Chamber of Commerce Foundation for partnering with us.
