IDCE 334--Planning and Zoning for Community Development

Kathryn Madden, IDCE

Course description

Cities represent layers of different actions that involve adding, erasing, building, and rebuilding. Some places come about through multiple small moves, others through large moves, while others result from neglect or unintended consequences. As professionals that look to the future, urban planners think about change and transformation, involving many different people and often contemplating long horizons and large areas. This master's level course focuses on the practical application of planning theory. We will be exploring and making recommendations for neighborhoods and districts in Worcester and looking at case studies from other cities in the United States.
