How do you imagine Healdsburg in 2040? Join us to welcome the team from the American Institute of Architects on August 13, 2018 at 6pm, in the Healdsburg High School Gymnasium. Healdsburg is one of eight cities across the U.S. awarded a 2018 Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) grant, part of an American Institute of Architects (AIA) program to help communities develop a vision for a sustainable future, and create a realistic and attainable roadmap to get there. Healdsburg’s SDAT will take place August 13-15, 2018.
The AIA team will visit our community for three intense, productive days. The process is fast-paced, exciting, and energizing. This approach, which can address social, economic, political, and physical issues, offers Healdsburg a tool that mobilizes local support and fosters new levels of cooperation. An SDAT includes open dialogue and participation, ending in a shared sense across the whole community. The DAT programs have used this grassroots approach across the nation to help create communities that are healthy, safe and livable, as well as more sustainable.
