A multi-day charrette has been scheduled to allow the community to assist in the preparation of the new form-based code. A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, planners and other technical professionals collaborate. Throughout the process, the public will have the chance to give input and react to concepts, leading to a more refined vision with many of the details for the new zoning already worked out. Charrettes are inclusive by nature and are designed to build consensus from the outset, providing a collaborative forum to bring all parties together with a focus on a common goal. The hands-on nature of the charrette, the opportunity to interact with differing perspectives and the short feedback loop will allow issues to be identified and resolved early on in the process.

On Saturday, July 25 through Wednesday, July 29, the consultant team will be in Asheville to work with citizens and stakeholders to discuss the new form-based code. All events will be open to the public. Download the full schedule here. Charrette events include:
