This month Livable Memphis goes 'back to basics' with our newest community workshop: Planning and Your Community. If you've ever wondered what the difference is between a public meeting and a public hearing, why most people don't participate in planning discussions (but why you should), and who 'the players' are who make the decisions, this Pizza with Planners is for you.
Among the topics we will be discussing:
- Why we plan and the major kinds of plans
- Why public participation is so important and how to make the most of your opportunities
- Where and how individual land use cases (like rezonings) get heard
- Who makes the decisions
We will also demystify some common planning jargon, from ingress and egress to overlays and plats.
When: August 21, 2014
Where: Benjamin Hooks Library, 3030 Poplar Ave
Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm
