WCCA Specials: Urban Planning with the People

WCCA TV attended the Urban Planning with the People at the Worcester Public Library in August 2017 by Dr. Tom Conroy.  He  is the Chair and Associate Professor of Urban Studies at Worcester State University.  An urban historian by training with a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, both his scholarly work and community-engaged scholarship focuses on the idea of urban exclusion historically and contemporarily, and ways to redress it.  Urban exclusion refers to the variety of processes whereby people are disenfranchised in and by the cities in which they live and work.  He has recently co-authored "In Search of Opportunity:  Latino Men’s Path to Post-Secondary Education in Urban Massachusetts" and is a co-creator of the CitySpeak Initiative, a research- and arts-based approach to urban planning and community development.   The interactive presentation and discussion explores ways that cities such as Worcester can include citizens in early stages and throughout the urban planning process.
