Research for TCAT’s new research project ‘Creating a Town Centre in Tower Neighbourhood’ kicked off last weekend.
TCAT’s partner in the project, the Flemingdon Urban Fair Committee (FUFC), creates events that are meant to enliven the public spaces in Flemingdon Park. On Friday August 14th, TCAT’s Car Martin along with several members of the FUFC and volunteers collected surveys from residents to find out about their favourite public spaces and what changes they would like to see in their neighbourhood.
TCAT will take this valuable information and feed it into upcoming community design workshops this fall to design a new focal point in Flemingdon. Our partner Dr. Suzanne Jackson and her student support at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health will be evaluating the project to contribute to the knowledge base on participatory design practices.
