The 2018 Master of Urban Planning (MUP) Capstone Studio project, Visioning a Greenspace Network with Smoketown Youth, builds off the work of the 2017 Neighborhood Planning Studio, which developed A Document to Inform the Smoketown Neighborhood Plan.

In the Capstone Studio, students continued working with the Smoketown Neighborhood Association, Louisville Metro Office of Advanced Planning, and Louisville Metro Housing Authority to focus on planning and design for four greenspaces in the Smoketown neighborhood.

The MUP students centered the community engagement process for this project on Smoketown youth, which included 100+ sixth grade students from Meyzeek Middle School, and crafted an engagement process that taught them planning and design skills while gathering feedback on the youth’s vision for Smoketown’s greenspaces.

The MUP students will present a Story Map of their community engagement process, key findings, and recommendations.
