New Ulm Planning Project

New Ulm Planning Project

New Ulm, Minnesota

Planning process with two housing workshops for city officials, developers and business leaders to explore the viability of three potential housing sites in the city. Alternative development scenarios were presented through an interactive model with removable pieces so that several different solutions could be tested and discussed for each site. Unlike an abstract color-coded zoning map, the interactive model depicted streets, buildings and open space to give a more realistic view of how development could occur.

CLIENT: City of New Ulm Chamber of Commerce, with a grant from Minnesota Housing Partnership
