June 8, 2011 — Public Workshop to Define Livability in the Parkview Gardens Neighborhood
On Wednesday, June 8, 2011, University City residents participated in the first public workshop to learn about livability principles and to discuss goals for the neighborhood.
John Hoal from H3 Studios reviewed the six established principles of livability and engage participants in a discussion about how we might prioritize these principles for the Parkview Gardens neighborhood. Participants then met in small groups and created their OWN VISION for the neighborhood.
The livability principles were established by the Partnership for Sustainable Communities and include:
1. Provide more transportation choices.
2. Promote equitable, affordable housing.
3. Enhance economic competitiveness.
4. Support existing communities.
5. Coordinate policies and leverage investment.
6. Value communities and neighborhoods.
Enhance the unique characteristics of all communities by investing in healthy, safe, and walkable neighborhoods—rural, urban, or suburban.
