Mississippi Renewal Design and Development Center Strategic Planning Workshop
August 7-8, 2006 (Gulfport, MS)

The Knight Program organized a planning workshop to discuss the establishment of a design and development center in the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Participants were invited from all eleven communities involved in the Mississippi Renewal Forum as well as business leaders, state and regional representatives, nonprofit entities, and citizens at large. The workshop brought together four directors of design centers from Charleston, the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council of Florida, and current and past directors from Nashville. The workshop included presentations, brainstorming, and extensive discussions between the project leader, Charles Bohl, director of the Knight Program in Community Building, these technical advisors, and people on the ground in Mississippi. The two-day workshop was funded in part by a grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Trust via the Smart Growth Funders Network.

For this initiative to be realized, prospective board members will need to step forward, help refine the proposal, and become champions of the establishment of a design and development center. Once this has occurred, the Knight Program and its network of Fellows, colleagues, and faculty at the University of Miami stand ready to assist in transmitting and marketing the proposal to prospective funders.
