CAPPA, a Community Approach to Planning Prince Avenue, was formed as a vehicle to gather information about the users and uses of Athens’s historic Prince Avenue — what works and what doesn’t; what it has now, had then and might have in the future. A diverse population of stakeholders was included in the process and possible design solutions were presented in a visual format to stimulate public comment and/or action.
After months of data collection and public input, over 200 volunteers including design professionals, community leaders, UGA faculty, staff and students, ACC staff and ordinary folks spent hundreds of man-hours in a three-day design charrette led by CED’s Center for Community Design & Preservation converting those facts, opinions and wishes into a series of visual representations.
The images created during the CAPPA process gave graphic expression to the public’s aspirations for the future of Prince Avenue. They are organized by Charrette Team as dictated by the issues facing Prince Avenue according to over 600 responses to our questionnaires — Landscape, Historic Resources, Diversity of Uses (Planning), Urban Design and Transportation.
