Planning with LGBTQ Communities: Lessons from Atlanta, Tampa, and Houston
November 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the School of City & Regional Planning and Student Planning Association for World Town Planning Day: Planning with LGBTQ Communities: Lessons from Atlanta, Tampa, and Houston featuring Petra Doan, Professor at Florida State University.
The presentation will review the resistance to planning for LGBTQ spaces from some quarters and then argue why such planning is needed. Petra will use case examples from Midtown in Atlanta (as an example of planning that failed to include the LGBTQ population) and planning for Ybor City in Tampa as an example of planning that did. She will also discuss briefly a recent planning effort in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston that was very LGBTQ inclusive. She will conclude with a few comments about best practices for planning with LGBTQ populations and for delineating LGBTQ spaces.
Hosted by the Georgia Tech Student Planning Association and the School of City & Regional Planning.
