Downtown Renaissance Partnership Makes a Difference Across the State

UGA College of Environment and Design Assistant Professor Douglas Pardue works with Lindsey White, one of the students in the spring semester 2015 Downtown Renaissance Planning and Design practicum. She is working on a conceptual master plan for Milledgeville’s Central City Park. They are at work in the CED design studio in the Jackson Street Building on the UGA campus. 

Three years and 29 students later the Downtown Renaissance Partnership, an innovative collaboration among GMA, the Georgia Cities Foundation (GCF) and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government and the College of Environment and Design (CED), is thriving and delivering results for Geor­gia cities.

The Renaissance Partnership features three programs: the Renaissance Strate­gic Visioning and Planning, the Down­town Renaissance Practicum Class and Downtown Renaissance Fellows. Both the class and the fellowships draw on landscape architecture, historic preser­vation and planning students from CED. – See more at:
