Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Living Community Challenge (LCC) has ramped up fast - come hear the latest on this groundbreaking system for taking the LBC to the community scale.  First we’ll take a quick look at what the LCC actually is, and how it expands on the LBC.  We’ll then do a deep dive on some of the ILFI’s groundbreaking community scale visioning in the First Hill neighborhood in Seattle, San Francisco, Normal, Illinois, and the District of Columbia.  Then we wrap up with a fantastic new tool created by the Institute for implementing LCC solutions: the Living Community Patterns.
