After the parks department experienced a significant reorganization in 2013, the city has been struggling to establish a coordinated effort around designing and maintaining its parks, with nonprofits and other partners stepping in to provide support. This is an opportune time for a workshop to help the city establish roles, stronger partnerships, and better outreach to low-income and communities of color. In addition, this work will build on their 10-Minute Walk Campaign, as well as complement a city-wide park system master planning process kicking off this year. The Chattanooga Division of Open Spaces, The Trust for Public Land, and Chattanooga Design Studio have a history of successful collaboration and will be working together to host the workshop.
