Growing In Place 2010
Growing In Place: 2010
Location: Marbles Kids Museum
201 East Hargett Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
The symposium will focus on urban landscape planning and design policies needed to facilitate independent mobility of children. We will discuss strategies for managing pedestrian and bicycle routes and the quality of the places of everyday life they connect—especially parks, but also museums, libraries, stores, social services, so that families are motivated to be outdoors engaged with the natural environment.

The aim of the symposium is to stimulate discussion about how planners and designers can meet the challenge of enhancing the wellbeing of urban families in North Carolina, across the nation, and the world. As cities grow and develop, opportunities to support family life in a healthy public realm should multiply. European design innovations such as “home zones” together with community participation processes and design guidelines will serve as triggers for discussions about how cities can grow in harmony with the needs of their citizens across the life span.
