Site Plan Review Workshop – Sony Peronel
On February 12, 2014 our first technical workshop introduced us to site planning. Learning how to dissect a site plan is important to have in your “arsenal” as a planner. The guest speakers were insightful and presented a great introduction into site planning. The speakers displayed passion and gave the workshop personality by refraining from keeping the content politically correct. They welcomed all questions from students and even stayed past the allotted time. Below is an overview of what was presented in case you missed this insightful workshop. I personally thank Emily and Amy for putting the workshop together. GO URBAN KNIGHTS!
