2013 Livable Neighborhoods Training

From 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Saturday, May 11, the Municipal Art Society will host the Spring 2013 edition of its Livable Neighborhoods training series, a free, day-long workshop for community activists at Pratt's Manhattan campus at 144 West 14th Street.

The event, aimed at providing the resources needed to transform vision into results, is co-sponsored by Pratt Institute’s Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development.

A light breakfast and lunch will be served.

Registration is required. Register online here.

A few of the breakout sessions:
  • Zoning
  • Historic Preservation
  • Neighborhood-Based Economic Development
  • Advocating for New York’s Changing Streets. 
The training will give community activists the knowledge and tools needed to change their neighborhoods.

This year’s event will focus on neighborhood resilience, opening with a panel discussion on "Building Back Green." Breakout sessions will focus on funding resilience measures, assessing neighborhood strengths and weaknesses, and building responsive social networks.

Participants can join the online Livable Neighborhoods network through LinkedIn by clicking here, to post questions, relay success stories and share ideas on how to make their neighborhoods more livable through community-based planning.
