Take Note

Urban design guidelines noted

Emory, the Clifton Community Partnership and the urban design firm Goody Clancy were honored by the Congress for New Urbanism at its 10th annual Charter Awards ceremony.

The award-winning urban design guidelines received considerable community input and were developed via the CCP, an initiative created by Emory to provide a framework to discuss common quality of life issues within the Clifton Community.

These guidelines help Emory “fulfill a vision to let students, faculty, staff, patients, residents and visitors know they are in the Clifton Community by the beautifully landscaped streetscapes, walkable safe sidewalks and human activity at the street-level,” said Executive Vice President for Finance & Administration Mike Mandl. “We expect that these guidelines will also serve as a national model for productive university-community collaboration.”
