The Office of Strategic Planning & Community Development invites you to the People First Design Workshop. 

This event is a fun workshop to introduce us to Gehl Studio's people focused research and design, meet representatives from Gehl's various offices that will be working with us here in Somerville, a brief overview of new public open space planning initiatives, and some exercises to help us identify qualities we want to promote in our various existing and new public spaces.

This work will also help develop a scope for the future Public Space, Public Life survey that will be carried out in May.

To get a head start on the workshop, please take the “Favorite Places Survey”. This short questionnaire will assist Gehl Studio in understanding more about everyone’s favorite existing places in Somerville and inform future work as the project unfolds. 

Feel free share this invite with others from Somerville through email, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
