  1. I would add that a “charette”, whether one or two days, should not take place on weekdays if you want to engage the community. Here in Portland, (OR) the only charrettes I’ve seen have been held on weekdays, with an open house in the evening, so working people can see the results.

    If the goal is to engage the retired or the unemployed, fine. But if you want to engage the majority of the community, don’t hold a charrette during a work day when most of the constituents can’t attend.

  2. Good ideas, but I’m not sure there doesn’t have to be a dictator involved. Somebody who cares more than anybody else what the development should look like. Someone who is more imaginative than anyone else, and can envision possibilities that no one else can. There has to be a leader, I think. But a good leader must care about everybody, and see that everybody gets some of what they want.
