The Comprehensive Planner: Taking a Systems Perspective

Date

April 14, 2017

Time

1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Location

1362 McMillan Avenue, Suite 100, North Charleston, SC

Venue

BCDCOG, Barrett Lawrimore Conference Room

Narrative

Steve Whitman and Chris Parker will explore the many problems facing communities of all sizes, and the underlying issue of ecosystem services. They will explore how thinking holistically and using a systems perspective can provide a new way forward for communities. While planning documents may take a systems perspective, land use regulations seldom do. This integrated approach provides for the regeneration of lost ecosystem services, and the resulting projects will help your community become more adaptive and resilient over time. Case study examples will be shared to highlight how to apply this approach, and to serve as a call to action so more planners become part of this collaborative effort.
