    A documentary short based on the Downtown project by the Carbon Trace Productions team (see: carbontrace.net). This short was developed specifically for the New Urbanism Film Festival (newurbanismfilmfestival.com/). Please see the credits at the end of the film for music credits and material used under the Fair Use guidelines of U.S. Copyright law. Description: Public spaces, such as Park Central Square in Springfield, Missouri, can be designed to attract people. But what kind of people? And will those people interact and get along? This film explores the limits of shared public spaces and the people who use them. One of those people is Joonyper Light, a local artist and musician, who moved to Springfield from a "suburbia town" in California. She says the Square, and the diverse people she found there, helped her learn Springfield culture and come to love it as a place to live.

          When nearly 400 low-income families in Portland, Oregon are displaced from their homes to make way for a “social experiment'” in urban renewal, residents must fight stereotypes of race and class, and struggle for empowerment, healing, and dignity in the redeveloped neighborhood. This feature documentary about the demolition of Portland's historic Columbia Villa and development of New Columbia in its place was awarded Best Documentary From a Northwest Filmmaker at the 2010 Eugene International Film Festival, won the Audience Award at the 2010 Northwest Filmmakers Festival, and has shown in many countries at festivals, conferences, and universities. "Imagining Home" was funded in part by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Oregon Council for the Humanities, Oregon Arts Commission, and Regional Arts & Culture Council. This is a 10-minute look at some of the topics and characters profiled in the film, which is being re-released on the ten-year anniversary of the opening of the New Columbia neighborhood.

                  The Build a Better Boulevard Project is a Study designed to re-envision a Wilkinson Boulevard that enhances placemaking opportunities, economic development potential and the commuting experience for the citizens of Belmont, Cramerton and McAdenville. The Project is in partnership with the Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln MPO. The Project is focused on physical improvements to the character and function of the segment of the Wilkinson Boulevard Corridor running from the Catawba River to the Wesleyan Drive/Market Street intersection just to the west of the South Fork River. The study will identify street design improvements and strategies based on; 1- the local context and user needs of the Boulevard and adjoining property owners and 2-the regional context and function of the Boulevard within Gaston County and metropolitan Charlotte. Recommendations on existing zoning and land use will also be made to inform and support the suggested improvements and strategies.
