Center for Community Design & Preservation

The Center for Community Design & Preservation (CCDP) serves as the Public Service and Outreach office for the College of Environment & Design. We provide opportunities for our faculty and students to engage in real-world projects and put their academic pursuits into practice.

The CCDP delivers conceptual community design services by utilizing a mix of faculty, professional staff and students, which helps leverage professional assistance to implement projects. As recipient communities receive high quality design services they could not otherwise afford, students receive the practical hands-on experience that makes them more marketable as graduates.

CCDP houses a statewide historic resources survey program — FindIT! — in conjunction with the Georgia Transmission Corporation, as well as the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NAPC) — a non-profit dedicated to serving the nation’s preservation design review commissions. Both of these long-standing programs provide invaluable graduate assistantships to CED students, enhancing their learning experience and the programs’ successes.
