Recreating Neighborhoods

The presentation Recreating Neighborhoods: Putting the Pieces Together, looks at several physical elements that make up a good neighborhood. Seven topics are covered in six sections, with summary points at the end of each section. Section 1 contains the first two topics.

The presentations are meant to stand on their own. Although it is not necessary to see the video Designing Better Places for Recreating Neighborhoods to make sense, design terms explained in the video are also used in the PowerPoint presentations.
