Practitioner Workshops

The public process identified several community opportunities and challenges. Some of these became topics for a series of practitioner workshops that focused on tools that Keene could consider as part of an overarching implementation strategy; many of these tools became action items in the plan. The workshops were given specific titles under the general theme Tools in the Smart Growth Toolbox, to focus participants on the practical nature of these workshops, and to recognize the role that smart-growth principles have had in shaping the community's discussion. These four sessions were held from October to December 2009:

  • Sustainable and Affordable Housing Strategies
  • Low-Impact Development
  • Strategies for a Healthy & Sustainable Economy
  • Innovative & Sustainable Transportation Solutions
