The focus of the workshop aims specifically to introduce small town and rural technical assistance providers and decision makers to the role of design in community planning. The workshop consists of highly informative presentations and problem-solving activities for participants. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to network with other leaders from communities throughout Alabama. Participants will make contacts with presenters who work throughout Alabama in the planning, design, economic development, and resource preservation fields. Former participants remark that the workshop is FUN and invigorating and opened their minds to many possibilities
