Neighborhood Masterplanning & Charrette for Lawrence Community Works – Lawrence, MA

Neighborhood Masterplanning & Charrette for Lawrence Community Works – Lawrence, MA

Sorensen Partners was Charrette Facilitator and Masterplanner for Lawrence Community Works in 2013 to assist residents of the North Common Neighborhood in Lawrence, MA in setting development goals for improving physical community amenities – including housing, public buildings, and parks. The planning process was funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.

We designed an 8 by 8 foot map and game pieces for participants to add input to the map based on where they want to see physical and policy improvements take place.

Our first charrette was held at Lawrence Community Works and included participants from the neighborhood and city government.

Working with Lawrence Community Works’ Community Organizers, we mounted the map to a truck and brought it to multiple locations in the North Common Neighborhood so we could interact directly with residents.
