Workshop Date & Time: Saturday, September 13, 2008  10:00 AM - 12:30

Location: Santa Rosa Neighborhood Center 1080 S. 10th Ave. 

Many neighborhoods face changes in the way land is used in their neighborhoods.  Commercial development, owner-occupied to rental, infill projects, rezoned parcels, roadways coming through, liquor licenses upgraded or moved, major institutions expanding or contracting are all the subject of neighborhood attention as the years go by.

NSN is sponsoring a workshop to focus on the ins and outs of neighborhood reaction to and participation in changing land use.  The focus of the workshop will be on process, on tips, wisdom and lessons learned, on the politics involved and on how to maximize neighborhood influence on the decisions made.

Two case histories will be described and used as examples for study. In each case, a small panel of experienced people will consider the case and will offer observations, suggestions, tips and lessons learned. The accent will be on process, how and why it went the way it did and how it might have gone differently if other courses were taken. Audience participation will be interwoven with panel commentary. Handouts and background material will be made available.

Panelists scheduled to appear:

Ruth Beeker, President, Miramonte Neighborhood Association
Patricia Gehlen, City Development Services Department, Jefferson Park resident, extensive knowledge of Land Use Code
Lori Boston, President, West University Neighborhood Association
Roger Howlett, City Department of Urban Planning and Design
Mac Hudson, Former President, Menlo Park Neighborhood Association, Current Ward I Council Aide

Participants should come away with expanded knowledge of how to approach similar situations, how to identify resources, how and when to build a power base, what steps will most likely lead to success and which avenues are likely to be frustrating.

Please join us as we tackle a topic most of us have faced and will face again in the future.
