2 hrs. Webinar

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-W092623

SME: Rumanda Young, Ph.D.

This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 05/16/2023. Attendees of the previously offered presentation, RV-W092623, will not receive CEU for attending the 09/26/2023 presentation.
This two-hour webinar introduces the urban design concept and practice of planning a city for day and night-time use. Current urban planning concepts are tailored almost exclusively to regulate daytime functions. This means, intentionally or not, night-time urban planning principles implemented to protect the safety of people and enhance vibrant night-time economies are overlooked. This creates tension between the day use sector of offices, schools, and retail establishments with the economically thriving night sector of bars, restaurants, music venues and movie theaters. This webinar will explore the successes and failures of case study communities that plan and operate for both day and night-time sectors.
