Designing Urban Spaces: Engaging Local Designers in the Modesto Downtown Master Plan
Good urban design can be the difference between a nice, tree-shaded stroll with a group of friends enjoying conversation or an inhospitable, single-file walk down a hot, narrow sidewalk shouting to your friends over loud traffic. Urban design can also make the difference between having or not having accessibility and equity in our community
In this MADWEEK “Crash Course,” learn about key principles that apply to the creation and management of positive urban spaces and the ways they influence human exchange.

The Downtown Modesto Partnership is hosting this MADWEEK Crash Course to introduce and engage local designers in the process of Modesto’s Downtown Master Plan, in particular the upcoming Design Charrette Activity (September 30 - October 4). This is an important opportunity for local design creatives to participate in and influence the future vision of our downtown!
The Downtown Master Plan project will address improved parking, attractive public spaces, opportunities for housing, transit and other elements of a successful downtown. The success of the Downtown Master Plan depends on community involvement and engagement to determine the downtown Modesto of the future.
Design Charrette Activity: September 30 - October 4, 2019
The City of Modesto will host a week-long Design Charrette as part of the Downtown Master Plan process, from Monday, September 30 through Friday, October 4, a multi-day exploration of potential downtown design concepts.

Come and hear more from the Downtown Partnership team and learn about how the local design community can engage and participate in this important process for envisioning the future of our downtown!
